How can you help with Facial Trauma?
To properly treat facial trauma, your dental professional should be well versed in emergency care, acute treatment and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of physical, as well as emotional, trauma. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training, involving hands-on experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long term function and appearance.
Our team of surgeons meets and exceed these high standards. In addition to their work at our practice, they are on the staff of local hospitals and deliver emergency room coverage for facial injuries, which can include conditions such as:
- Facial lacerations
- Intra-oral lacerations
- Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
- Fractured facial bones i.e. cheek, nose or eye socket
- Fractured jaws (upper and lower)
