What is facial trauma?
Facial trauma includes injuries to the face. Because of the nature of these injuries, facial trauma often involves a high degree of both emotional and physical trauma. The following are common types of facial trauma our oral and maxillofacial surgeon treats at Cannon Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery:
- Avulsed (knocked-out) teeth
- Facial lacerations
- Fractured facial bones (such as the cheek, nose, or eye socket)
- Fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)
- Intraoral lacerations
