Facial trauma can cause lasting functional issues as well as significant cosmetic changes. Injuries to different areas carry different consequences and call for different treatment responses. Commonwealth Oral & Facial Surgery treats different types and degrees of facial injuries with the intent of resolving the different esthetic and health challenges these injuries present. In addition to having the support of our surgical team, patients can count on us to provide immediate support and to arrange any care over a longer term that might be needed. In this way, we can prevent trauma to one or more region of the face from becoming a lasting problem.
Facial Injuries Call For Dedicated And Careful Treatment
Injuries that affect our facial regions can lead to serious complications. The kinds of trauma that can require advanced care include:
- Serious lacerations to the lip and mouth area, including lacerations to the inside of the mouth
