Description:Soft Tissue Injuries Of The Maxillofacial Region Facial lacerations present a challenge to the trauma surgeon in that a cosmetic result is of paramount importance. The treatment of facial fractures should be accomplished in a thorough and predictable manner. Tracheal intubation inserting a tube into the airway to assist breathing may be difficult or impossible due to swelling. The sooner the tooth is re-inserted into the dental socket, the better chance it will survive. Neurosurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons and ophthalmic surgeons may also be involved in more complex craniofacial trauma cases, and multi-disciplinary treatment is provided to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Therefore, the patient should see a dentist or oral surgeon as soon as possible. At the same time, the incisions that become necessary, are designed to be small and, whenever possible, are placed so that the resultant scar is hidden.
