Facial Trauma

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specially trained with intimate knowledge of the relationship between the bones of the face, the upper and lower jaws, and teeth. After a major or minor facial trauma, this working anatomic knowledge is essential to restore form, function and appearance.

Types of facial trauma that may require surgery include:

  • facial lacerations
  • fractures of facial bones (cheek, nose, jaw, eye socket, forehead)
  • avulsion of teeth

Facial trauma causes a high degree of physical and emotional trauma to the patient. Correcting facial trauma requires special training and an in depth understanding of the long term function and appearance of the face. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons take into consideration the patient’s prior appearance and any permanent damage that will affect the results.
