Comprehensive Management of Facial Trauma

Comprehensive Management of Facial Trauma: What to Expect?

The face is one of the most vulnerable areas of the human body. It houses essential functionalities like eyesight, the ability to eat and drink, the vocal apparatus, and a range of emotions that allow communication and interaction with others. When facial trauma happens, the effects can be debilitating both physically and psychologically. Therefore, proper management of these injuries is critical to successful recovery and restoration of facial aesthetics and function. At Minnesota Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Minneapolis, MN, we bring a wealth of expertise and a meticulous approach to the Comprehensive Management of Facial Trauma.

Types of Facial Trauma

Facial traumas are diverse, ranging from minor injuries to severe cases such as facial fractures. Common examples include:

  • Dental Trauma: Involves damage to the teeth or the supporting oral structures.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Involves wounds to the facial skin or mucosa, such as cuts, lacerations, or burns.
  • Bone Injuries: Involves fractures to the facial bones, like the jaw, cheeks, or nasal bones.
  • Eye Injuries: Damage to the eye or surrounding structures, such as eye socket fractures.
