Oral and Maxillofacial Trauma Surgery
Choose the oral and maxillofacial trauma surgeons who care about your body’s function, comfort and appearance.Even slight facial trauma can have a lifelong impact. Small scars and deformities are often noticeable, which can lead to self-consciousness. If you’ve experienced facial trauma, it’s important to see a well-trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon to repair any damage. We specialize in healing bone and soft tissue injuries while maximizing your appearance outcome.
Types of Trauma
Compassionate treatment for the full spectrum of oral and maxillofacial injuries. We can address many types of oral and facial trauma, including:
- Intraoral wounds – Serious wounds may require stitches or soft tissue grafting.
- Fractured jawbones, cheeks, noses and eye sockets – We repair and stabilize fractures to ensure they heal properly. Using small plates and screws to hold the bone in place — a technique called “rigid fixation” — we decrease healing time and the need for wiring of jaws.
- Knocked-out teeth – To maximize the tooth’s chance of survival, avoid wiping it off and store it in milk, salt water, or between your cheek and gums. We’ll then place the tooth back in its socket. Also, time-to-reinsertion is crucial! If your tooth doesn’t survive, dental implants are an excellent alternative.
Minimal Scarring and Recovery Time
Small incisions made inside the mouth hide even severe trauma repair. Along with minimizing pain and restoring optimal functionality, repairing your oral and maxillofacial trauma requires great care for your appearance. To avoid scarring, we make any necessary incisions inside the mouth or in other low-visibility areas. Also, modern technology allows us to repair fractures through tiny incisions that don’t leave scars. Along with avoiding scarring, these tiny incisions also reduce your overall recovery time.
Our experience and skill can make your life normal again. Our skilled surgeons are on staff at local hospitals and emergency rooms, where they’ve acquired experience with all types of oral and maxillofacial trauma. Trust us with your trauma treatment and we’ll help you put this whole incident behind you as soon as possible.
