What Is Facial Trauma Treatment?

Facial trauma may happen when a patient is involved in an accident. It involves treating injuries to the bone, gums, teeth, skin, or other facial and mouth tissues.

Oral surgeons are uniquely qualified to treat facial trauma. They can repair these issues and allow you to progress with your life after a traumatic experience.

Facial trauma frequently involves emergency medical situations. Always go to the emergency room or call 911 if you have significant facial trauma. Once you are stable, your oral surgeon can help you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Facial Trauma Treatment

What should I do if I knock out a tooth?

If you knock out a tooth, stay calm. If you see an oral surgeon promptly (ideally within the first 30 minutes), the chances of reseating your tooth increase.

Find the tooth and rinse it gently with cool water. Always hold it by the crown, not by the roots. After the tooth is clean, you can reseat it in the socket or carry it inside your cheek if you are fully conscious. Barring that, you can put it in a small cup of milk or saliva. Plain water should be a last resort.

The oral surgeon will replace your tooth in the socket and splint it to its neighbors for a few weeks. When the splints come out, the tooth should be back in place.

How do I know if my facial injury is serious?

Here are some signs you should note:

  • Loss of Consciousness: Seek emergency medical attention or talk to your doctor immediately.
  • Noticeable Change in Your Appearance
  • Change in Eyesight
  • Change in Breathing: Seek emergency medical attention.
  • Change in Dental Bite
  • Difficulty Swallowing or Speaking: Seek emergency medical attention.
  • Double Vision
  • Blurry Vision
What happens if I break my jaw? Will it have to be wired shut?

If you break your jaw, we can most likely treat it with small plates and screws made of titanium. This procedure allows your bones to heal without restricting the movement of your jaw. If the fractures are unstable, jaw wiring may be necessary.
