Any facial injury means both physical and emotional suffering for patients. Facial injuries can be caused various ways-violence, work-related, car or motorcycle accidents, sport injuries, or falls. The injuries can be classified into categories:
- Soft tissue injuries (skin or gums; Figure a)
- Bone injuries (fractures; Figure b)
- Injuries to specific regions (facial nerves, eye area, salivary glands)
- Dislodged tooth (Figure c)
