There are several possible causes of facial trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, accidental falls, sports injuries, interpersonal violence, and work-related injuries. Whilst proper treatment is obviously critical for physical reasons, the emotional health of the patient is also at stake.
Unless the injuries are minor, a patient suffering facial trauma should immediately see a specialist in maxillofacial surgery. It is of the utmost importance that injuries such as facial fractures are treated by experts in order to ensure a proper reduction and fixation of fractures.
