Introduction to Facial Injuries

by Sam P. Most, MD

Injuries to the face often occur in combination. For example, the eye and the nose or the mouth and the cheek can be damaged as a result of the same injury. Injuries to the mouth and teeth (see Urgent Dental Problems), the inner ear (see Ear Injury), and the eyes (see Injuries to the Eye) are discussed elsewhere.
