In brief: Simple to complex

Mouth trauma include soft tissue of lips, gingiva, tongue, and cheek.
Also, there can be trauma to the bone of maxilla, mandible, and teeth. It is a highly vasclar area, and bleeding needs to be controlled. It is the airway and needs to be kept open. One needs to prevent aspiration. X-rays, ctscan, and/or MRI may be indicated for optimum surgical planning.Antibiotics, soft diet, and ice may be used.

In brief: Depends on problem

Wide area to answer. Specific injuries are treated in specific ways.
Seeking qualified medical/dental advice relative the nature, type and extent of tissue damage is important.
