There are a number of possible causes of facial trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, accidental falls, sports injuries, interpersonal violence and work related injuries. Types of facial injuries can range from injuries of teeth to extremely severe injuries of the skin and bones of the face. Typically, facial injuries are classified as either soft tissue injuries (skin and gums), bone injuries (fractures), or injuries to vital structures (such as the eyes, facial nerves or the salivary glands).

Injuries to the Teeth and Surrounding Dental Structures

Isolated injuries to teeth are quite common and may require the expertise of various dental specialists. In addition to facial injuries, oral surgeons are involved in treating injuries of the mouth which often includes re-implanting teeth that have been displaced or knocked out. These types of injuries are treated by splinting (stabilize with wire or dental bonding). If a tooth is completely knocked out, it should be placed in salt water, milk or placed under the tongue until reaching the hospital or office. The sooner the tooth is re-inserted into the dental socket, the better chance it will survive. Therefore, the patient should see a dentist or oral surgeon as soon as possible. Never attempt to wipe the tooth off, since remnants of the ligament that hold the tooth in the jaw are attached and are vital to the success of re-implanting the tooth. The treating doctor will gently rinse and debride the tooth with sterile saline before re-implanting. Other dental specialists may be called upon such as an endodontist (root canal specialist), and/or restorative dentists who may need to repair or rebuild fractured teeth. In the event that injured teeth cannot be saved or repaired, dental implants are often now utilized as replacements for missing teeth.
