Facial trauma may result in injuries ranging from mild bruising to severe fractures, leading to irreversible sequelae and sometimes life-threatening complications.

Treatment of trauma patients should start immediately after the accident. Maintenance of upper airway patency, control of bleeding and immobilization are the primary goals, followed by stabilization of vital signs and a neurological examination.

Once hospitalized, patients should be resuscitated and constantly monitored, including a more detailed clinical evaluation. Surgical and definitive prosthetic treatments are provided after identification of the lesion, stabilization of the patient, and the results of screening laboratory tests.
