The Facts About Facial Trauma
As a maxillofacial surgery practice, we perform the proper treatment of facial injuries. We are well versed in emergency care, acute treatment and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation, not just for physical reasons but also for emotional reasons. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional and physical trauma. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training involving a hands-on experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long term function and appearance.
