Maxillofacial Injury

Maxillofacial injuries comprise injuries to the facial bones, oral and facial soft tissues, as well as the teeth.

These injuries can occur as a result of road traffic accidents, domestic violence or industrial accidents. It can range from relatively minor ones, which can be treated on an outpatient basis, to severe injuries which require hospital admission and surgery.

These injuries are treated by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and there is a 24-hour service available for the diagnosis and management of these cases.
