Facial Trauma

Expertise. Reliability. Integrity.


Facial injuries can be both physically and emotionally traumatic. Expertly treating them requires extensive training and experience as it can be both a science and an art. The surgical team at CVOS Oral Surgery has a strong understanding of how a treatment can affect a patient’s appearance and quality of life.

In addition to caring for patients in our various clinics, our surgeons also provide emergency room coverage at local hospitals for the treatment of such facial injuries as:

  • Facial lacerations
  • Intra oral lacerations
  • Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
  • Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose or eye socket)
  • Fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)


Regardless of whether the injury is sports-related, the result of a car accident, or due to an incident at work, injuries commonly treated can affect the soft tissue (e.g. the skin and gums) as well as teeth and bone. Some injuries can even affect your eyes, facial nerves, or salivary glands.


When treating soft tissue injuries such as lacerations, the surgeons at CVOS Oral Surgery inspect and repair damaged facial nerves, salivary glands, and salivary ducts. Every step is taken to ensure the best possible cosmetic outcome.


The goal of our surgeons, when treating facial fractures, is to facilitate your thorough and predictable recovery. While the specific form of treatment selected will depend on a number of factors, such as the location and severity of your fracture, your surgeon will recommend treatment options that have minimal effect on your facial appearance.

This includes attempting to access facial bones using the smallest and fewest number of incisions necessary while making every effort to place required incisions where a resulting scar can be hidden.

If You Knock A Tooth Out

When you injure or knock out a tooth, you are likely to be referred to CVOS Oral Surgery for treatment of the fracture to the supporting bone or where replanting the tooth is a possibility.

  • If your tooth is knocked out, place it in salt water or milk as soon as possible.
  • Contact your family dentist or oral surgeon as soon as possible. The sooner the tooth is re-inserted into the dental socket, the greater the chance it will survive.
  • Never attempt to wipe the tooth off. Remnants of the ligament that hold the tooth in the jaw may still be attached and are vital to the success of replanting the tooth.

In the event that injured teeth cannot be saved or repaired, dental implants may be the best alternative to replace your missing tooth. Ask your CVOS oral surgeon why dental implants may be your best alternative to your natural teeth.
