Types of Facial Injuries
Car accidents, sports injuries, work-related accidents, or physical altercations are all common causes of facial trauma injuries. We treat the following types of facial injuries in our office.
Dentists usually repair chipped teeth and other minor dental injuries; however, oral surgeons are more equipped to address avulsed (knocked-out) teeth and damaged teeth beneath the surface of the gums. If we are unable to replace your knocked-out teeth, dental implants are an excellent choice for replacement.
Facial Cuts and Lacerations
Sutures or surgical stitches are the most common treatment for oral cuts or lacerations. Sutures are beneficial because they produce minimal scarring, and our oral surgeons are still able to examine the mouth for further complications.
When you injure a bone in any other part of your body, doctors use a cast to set and repair the bone. However, casts cannot treat facial bones; instead, our oral surgeons use screws, plates, wires, and other surgical tools to realign the damaged or misplaced bones. Common bone injuries treated by our oral surgeons include fractured jaws and damaged cheekbones or eye sockets.
