Cranial and Facial Trauma

Cranial and facial trauma refers to any injury to the head or face, which can be caused by a variety of factors, including accidents, falls, and physical assault. Injuries to the head and face can be serious and require prompt medical attention. The skull and facial bones protect the brain and vital organs, so any damage to these structures can have severe consequences. At Pensacola Oral and Facial Surgery, we specialize in treating cranial and facial trauma using advanced surgical techniques.

Treatment Options

Symptoms of cranial and facial trauma can vary depending on the severity of the injury. Common signs include swelling, bruising, bleeding, pain, and difficulty breathing. In more severe cases, symptoms may include loss of consciousness, seizures, or changes in mental status.

Treatment for cranial and facial trauma will depend on the type and severity of the injury. For minor injuries, such as a broken nose or mild concussion, conservative treatments such as ice, rest, and pain medication may be sufficient. More severe injuries, such as skull fractures or facial bone fractures, may require surgery to repair and stabilize the affected area.

At Pensacola Oral and Facial Surgery, we offer a range of surgical treatments for cranial and facial trauma. These may include open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), which involves repositioning the broken bones and holding them in place with screws or plates. We may also use bone grafts to repair fractures and rebuild the affected area.

In addition to surgical treatments, we also offer non-surgical treatments for cranial and facial trauma, such as dental implants, prosthetics, and orthodontic treatment. These can help restore function and improve the appearance of the affected area.
