Facial and Jaw Trauma Surgery

What Is Facial and Jaw Trauma?

Trauma may be the result of a fall, sports injury, motor vehicle accident or interpersonal violence. It may result in broken teeth, broken jaw, broken facial bones and lacerations of the skin or gums. This may cause pain, swelling, difficulty chewing, changes in facial appearance, changes in vision, a bloody nose or altered sensation of the face.

Your doctor will examine your airway to determine the injuries and locate the broken bones.
