Facial Trauma

Facial Trauma Treatment at Pinnacle Oral Surgery SpecialistsFacial trauma can be an incredibly stressful (and certainly painful) experience. Pinnacle Oral Surgery Specialists is here to make sure that you get through it as painlessly and confidently as possible. We are thoroughly competent in our ability to work through any facial injuries or deformations to give you back your confidence and the functionality of your face and organs once again. If you have sustained facial trauma, see what we can do for you.

What is Facial Trauma?

Facial trauma can include any number of issues. Repairing some of these issues is essential, not only for your health and the functionality of your mouth and face but also for your emotional wellbeing, as the visual destruction of the face can cause a drop in self-esteem and self-confidence, which can, in turn, affect other parts of your life as well. Some of the issues that we see pretty regularly include facial lacerations, intraoral lacerations (cuts within your mouth), teeth that have been knocked out due to injury, fractured bones within the face such as your jaw or eye socket, or finally a fractured jaw. We can take care of any of these and more. There are three main varieties of facial trauma:


Soft-tissue injuries are generally lacerations, or cuts, in the soft-tissues of your face, hence their name. Generally, there are relatively easy to fix, with sutures or stitches. We do what we can in order to provide a cosmetically appealing result once everything is healed, with scarring at a minimum. We also work inside the mouth, taking care to work with nerves, salivary glands, and the ducts that flow out rather than in. Scarring in these areas could inhibit their function, so our long-term experiences have taught us how to handle it all well and safely.

Bone Injuries

Many of the cases we see include broken bones in the face. They require very similar treatment to broken bones anywhere else, but since you cannot put a cast on your face, we use other methods to stabilize the area and promote healing. These methods are decided on a highly individual basis, but some common methods include wiring the jaw shut and minimally invasive surgery, using as few incisions as possible, correcting the problem, and trying to achieve a scar-less result after healing. This is nearly always possible or close to possible.

Tooth Injuries

It is common to injure your tooth or a surrounding structure. We most commonly have to repair teeth that have been knocked out. The sooner that we can take care of that problem, the more likely we can reinsert said tooth. Otherwise, we can help you find a different solution. We also worked with dislodged or broken teeth and can use wires or bonding (forms of splints) to repair that damage as well.

Pinnacle Oral Surgery Specialists knows how intimidating it can be if you have injured your face, but rest assured no one will take better care of you than we will. Set up an appointment today to see how we can help you get back to your old self.
