Facial trauma is often the result of an accident, either in the home, workplace, or a motor vehicle collision, but can also be caused by a sports mishap or an act of violence. The severity of the injuries varies greatly and may include:
- Facial lacerations
- Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose, or eye socket)
- Fractured jaws (upper or lower jaw)
- Intraoral lacerations
- Knocked-out teeth
Treatment of facial trauma involves careful planning and meticulous attention to detail and the understanding that restoration of their physical appearance is also a primary concern for patients who suffer facial injuries.
