Facial Trauma

Restore Facial Function and Aesthetics

Facial trauma includes any sort of traumatic injury to the head, neck, mouth, or face. These types of injuries require attention from a skilled surgeon who specializes in evaluating and surgically correcting any problems. Oral surgeons receive this type of training during residency, and Dr. Koshgerian and Dr. Shelton are specially trained to treat cases involving facial trauma.

Types of Facial Trauma

Any type of injury that impacts your ability to speak, eat, or breathe properly requires treatment from an oral surgeon. This includes cases that are not life-threatening, such as aesthetic needs, in order to provide facial harmony and an improved appearance.

Types of facial trauma include:

  • Fractured or broken facial bones.
  • Avulsed (knocked-out) teeth.
  • Facial lacerations.
  • Intraoral lacerations.
  • Injury to the eyes or sockets.
  • Other facial deformities.
