Maxillofacial trauma includes injury to the face and jaw resulting most commonly from sports, accidents or violence.
Treatment for maxillofacial trauma varies depending upon the type and severity of the injury. Treatment will include a careful and systematic evaluation of structure and systems, including a comprehensive physical exam and x-rays. In some cases, diagnosis and treatment must be deferred until swelling subsides or until more severe injuries are resolved.
At Royal Dental Clinics, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon collaborates with emergency personal in the evaluation and treatment of patients with maxillofacial trauma.
Treatment for facial trauma is complex and often involves airway control, bleeding control, reduction of swelling, prevention of infection, repair of bone fractures, repair of lacerations or soft tissue injury, and reconstruction. Our expert dental and maxillofacial surgeons at Royal Dental Clinics can help you in such cases. The combination of dental and surgical training makes oral and maxillofacial surgeons uniquely skilled at restoring the aesthetics of facial proportions, the functionality of jaw joints and bites, and damaged or missing teeth.
