About Facial Trauma Treatment
Injuries to the face, jaw, teeth, or the soft tissues of the mouth are common and may affect patients of all ages. These injuries, also referred to as oral and facial (maxillofacial) trauma, can happen while playing sports, during an auto collision, or in everyday mishaps. Traumatic injuries can lead to a number of oral concerns for patients, ranging from fractured and loose teeth to lacerations in the face, and even a broken jawbone. At PURE Oral Surgery in Dallas, TX, our experienced team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons routinely treats and manages minor to complex facial trauma and injury cases. If you or a family member has suffered a traumatic injury to the face, jaw, or mouth, please contact one of our practices located throughout the DFW area to meet with our team of experts as soon as possible.

Types of Maxillofacial Injuries
At PURE Oral Surgery, our team routinely treats a wide variety of facial and oral trauma. Even if an injury may not look serious or feel painful, we encourage patients to seek immediate help to address the condition and prevent further harm, such as an infection or loss of function. Some of the most common types of oral and maxillofacial injuries result from a sudden or direct impact to the face and include:
- Loose or knocked out (avulsed) teeth
- Fractured teeth or tooth roots
- A broken or dislocated jaw
- Broken cheekbones, eye socket, or nose
- Lacerations to the tongue, gums, lips, or face
If you are bleeding or in pain, we urge you to get in touch with our office to schedule an emergency appointment. We can also recommend ways to store a lost tooth or manage your pain until you arrive at the hospital or our office.
What to Expect During Your Visit
As experienced oral surgeons in Dallas, TX, our doctors have an advanced understanding of maxillofacial anatomy and are uniquely qualified to care for injuries to the mouth, jaw, and face. Treatments for facial fractures and trauma or oral injuries vary and are based upon the severity of each case. When you arrive at one of our DFW oral surgery locations, the PURE team will assess your injury and may take 3D digital images to better understand the extent of any damage. We will then explain your condition and talk with you about your treatment options. In some cases, corrective jaw surgery could be necessary, especially for significant trauma to the jawbone. Other instances may only require an in-office treatment while multiple procedures might also be recommended to fully treat an injury, if necessary.
Recovery Following Facial Trauma
The amount of time needed for recovery will depend on your traumatic injury and the treatment(s) performed. Our oral surgeons will provide you with specific recovery and aftercare instructions to help enhance your comfort as you heal. We recommend that you avoid engaging in any strenuous activities or putting too much strain on the injured area to prevent further harm during the recovery period. Follow-up appointments might also be scheduled to ensure you are healing properly. Preventive measures, such as wearing a mouth guard during sports, may be suggested by our team to minimize the risk of future accidents.
