Facial Trauma

Condition

A serious facial injury should be treated at once. The sooner you visit your doctor, dentist or an emergency room, the sooner you can get a head start on a successful recovery.

Facial trauma is most commonly the result of a car accident, sports injury or a bad fall. But how do you know the difference between serious and minor facial injuries? There are several good indicators to help in deciding when to seek medical attention:

  • Suspicion of a broken bone
  • Difficulty in breathing due to nose bleeding or swelling
  • Double vision or blurry vision
  • Missing teeth
