Injuries to the face, by their very nature, can cause a high degree of both emotional and physical distress. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training and a thorough understanding of how the procedure(s) will influence long term function and appearance. Therefore, the specialist must be well versed in emergency care, acute management of symptoms, as well as long term reconstruction and rehabilitation processes.

The Nature of Maxillofacial Trauma

There can be a number of causes of trauma to the face including vehicular crashes, accidental falls, sports injuries, interpersonal violence and work-related injuries. Typically, facial trauma is diagnosed and classified as soft tissue damage (skin and gums), bone damage (fractures), or damage to special regions (such as the eyes, facial nerves or the salivary glands).
