What Can Cause Facial Trauma?

Facial trauma may be the result of an auto crash, sports injury, violence, or workplace accident. It may involve teeth, bones, skin, soft tissues, salivary glands, nerves, and eyes. Treatment requires compassion and expertise in multiple surgical disciplines, which are specific to oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Facial Trauma


acial trauma can be shocking, and we want to get you feeling and looking like your regular self. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, we are the experts in treating comprehensive facial trauma. We treat injuries to all bones of the face, soft tissues, teeth, lips, mouth, and neck.

Complex surgeries are what we are trained to do. Our expertise ranges from general dentistry to the finest cosmetic aspects of facial repair.

How Do I Get Started?

Most trauma is a surprise. If you have sustained an injury, have your hospital, physician, dentist, or other provider reach out to us directly. With trauma, the earlier the treatment, the better, so let us know immediately so we can expedite your care. Typically, a consultation is recommended to do a thorough clinical exam and review imaging.

For more emergent problems, our surgeons can be contacted and seen at your local hospital. From there, we’ll be able to provide you with your treatment options and discuss steps for a full recovery.

Do You Have Concerns About Cost?

We never want payment to hold anyone back from receiving the care they need for a healthy and happy smile. We aim to make it easy with several financial plans and guidance from our financial coordinator.
