Orofacial injuries are injuries sustained in the mouth and on the face. These injuries include displaced/fractured teeth, cuts in the mouth, tongue, face and bone fractures in the mouth and facial region.
What are Orofacial Injuries?
Orofacial injuries can happen to anybody of any age. However, active people who enjoy contact sports are particularly more prone to orofacial injuries.
Cuts and lacerations of the face require careful stitching for a predictable cosmetic result. Damaged teeth may require repositioning and wiring to fixate the teeth and fractured bones of the face may require surgery to fix the bones together.
