Facial trauma is very common and lacerations should be evaluated by a medical or dental professional. If the laceration is deep it should be sutured to allow proper healing. It is also appropriate to have antibiotic therapy to prevent the risk of infection. Following a traumatic injury resulting in laceration, a clean towel can be used to apply gentle firm pressure to the wound to control bleeding until professional help can be acquired.
Attention to the wound should be provided as soon as possible to avoid healing and infection. Delayed treatment could affect the ability of your medical or dental professional to repair the laceration and could result in unsightly defect.
