Maxillofacial trauma (MFT) is an important health problem frequently encountered in the emergency department. Although the cases are often accompanied by other system injuries, patients with isolated maxillofacial injuries can also be seen. The etiologies of MFTs vary among societies according to sociocultural structures. While the incidence of MFTs due to motor vehicle accidents is extremely high in developing countries, it is reported that the most common cause in developed countries is assault. It occurs due to factors such as gunshot wounds, animal attacks, and trauma. Cases such as fractures and lacerations, lodge abscesses, and airway obstructions due to hematoma occurring in the sublingual area are situations that require urgent intervention in maxillofacial surgery.
