Facial Trauma and Injuries
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled, and uniquely qualified to manage and treat various forms of facial trauma and injuries. Dr. Jason LeMoine, Dr. Vijay Parmar, Dr. Bradley Koch, Dr. Charles Ellis and Dr. Reda Taleb are on staff at local hospitals and deliver emergency room coverage for facial injuries, which include the following conditions:
- Facial lacerations
- Intra oral lacerations
- Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
- Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose, and eye socket)
- Fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)
There are a number of possible causes of facial trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, accidental falls, sports injuries, interpersonal violence, and work-related injuries. Types of facial injuries can range from teeth injuries to extremely severe injuries of facial skin and bones. Typically, facial injuries are classified as either soft tissue injuries (skin and gums), bone injuries (fractures), or injuries to special regions (such as the eyes, facial nerves or the salivary glands).
To review your treatment options for facial trauma or injuries, schedule an appointment with an oral surgeon.
