Facial Trauma

Restore the Aesthetics and Function of the Head, Neck, Mouth, and Face Following Trauma

When there is trauma to the face, often the mouth, teeth, or jaws are affected. Dr. Matthew Barefoot is specially trained to treat facial trauma with years of experience in hospitals and emergency rooms. Our highly trained, CPR-certified team will take excellent care of you while keeping you well-informed about your long-term healing and aesthetic results.

Types of Facial Injuries

When you visit our practice for treatment of facial trauma, Dr. Barefoot will use his expertise to restore your oral function and facial aesthetics while limiting the amount of visible scarring. Our office utilizes advanced 3D CBCT scanning, which provides detailed images of your facial structures for accurate treatment and predictable results.

Types of facial injuries include:

  • Lacerations (cuts) to the soft tissues of the face
  • Intraoral lacerations (cuts inside the mouth)
  • Teeth that have been knocked out
  • Fractures of the facial bones
  • Fractured jaws
  • Injuries to areas such as the eyes, facial nerves, or the salivary glands
