Your Oral Surgeon Can Treat Facial Trauma

Posted on 3/17/2016 by Tricia Ramsay
A man suffering from tooth pain because of a facial trauma!Many people are under the impression that their oral surgeon is only able to treat problems with their teeth, but this simply isn't the case. In fact, oral and maxillofacial surgeons can treat a variety of facial injuries that result from trauma, improving upon critical areas like speaking, swallowing, speaking, and breathing, as well as restoring the appearance of your face. Find out why you need to contact an oral surgeon if you are suffering from an injury as a result of facial trauma.

Facial Trauma Issues an Oral Surgeon Can Treat

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon can offer treatment options for soft tissue injuries, eye trauma, facial bone injuries, and issues involving the salivary glands and nerves. Some of the injuries that oral surgeons treat can include:

•  Mouth and facial lacerations
•  Broken and knocked-out teeth
•  Broken noses and other facial fractures
•  Cheekbone and eye socket fractures
•  Fractured upper and lower jaws
•  Complex trauma and injuries to the soft tissues

Treating Injuries to Facial Bones

If you have an injury to a facial bone, it is important to align and stabilize it promptly. This can be a tricky endeavor since casts aren't available to stabilize the bones of the face, so an experienced oral surgeon is crucial in proper healing.

Treating Broken Jaw Bones

The exact treatment method for a broken jaw will vary depending on the conditions, but some may require wiring of the lower and upper jaws together.

Treating Injuries Involving the Teeth

A broken tooth might require an oral surgeon to treat fractures of the jaw bone, and they may also place dental implants if the teeth are lost and cannot be replanted.

If you have suffered facial trauma and want to know if an oral surgeon can help you, contact our office to set up a consultation.
