Facial trauma requires emergency oral surgery for accidents like:
- Facial or oral lacerations
- Fractured bones such as the jaw, cheek or eye
- Knocked out teeth
Facial trauma may result from incidents such as
- Car accidents
- Work accidents
- Falls or slips
- Sports injuries
- Violent attack
Since our nose, chin, cheek, jaw, and front teeth are very prominent in our facial structure, they are commonly injured as a result of facial trauma. In the event of bone fractures surgery may be required. If you break a tooth as a result of a sporting accident you may need a tooth extraction or implant.
In the event of skin lacerations sutures may be required. Due to cosmetic considerations several specialized surgeons will collaborate to ensure the best possible outcome.
