A facial trauma injury can be caused by a variety of events, from accidental falls and auto accidents to assaults and sports-related injuries. Facial trauma injuries can vary widely in their severity, and the type and severity of the injury will determine the proper course of treatment.
Whether your injury is minor or severe enough to require hospitalization, oral surgeons are highly qualified to treat a variety of different facial fractures and injuries, including soft-tissue injuries, tooth injuries, bone fractures, and damage to other vital structures like nerves and salivary ducts. In fact, many oral surgeons are on call at local hospitals to treat emergency facial trauma cases.
Dr. Collins has undergone years of surgical training to gain an intimate understanding of the delicate balance of facial structures and muscles. As the only board-certified oral surgeon in Conway, AR, who is also a licensed medical doctor, you can feel confident that Dr. Collins will restore your oral function, smile, and facial aesthetics. If you experience a facial trauma injury, we will see you as soon as possible (usually the day you call) to diagnose and treat your condition.
Types of Facial Trauma Injuries
Facial trauma injuries vary in severity, and each case requires careful consideration and treatment. Some of the most common facial trauma injuries are:
- Fractured jaws
- Knocked-out teeth
- Facial or oral cuts
- Fractured facial bones (nose, eye socket, cheekbone)
Receiving immediate treatment is crucial to proper healing. Leaving facial injuries untreated can lead to complications later in life, such as TMJ disorders, premature tooth loss, impacted teeth, chronic headaches, and other issues.
