Rebuilding Your Smile Following Facial Trauma

September 1, 2023
When you or a loved one sustains a serious injury to the face or jaw, this could lead to major complications with your bite function, health, and your appearance. Our team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons can not only repair your facial trauma, but take steps to ensure an attractive appearance too. Your Elk River, MN, oral surgery clinic explains how we treat your facial trauma.

Common Examples of Facial Trauma

These injuries could be due to a serious accident, injury, or other issue, and are typically divided into two camps: soft tissue injuries and bone injuries. The trauma could impact the facial and jaw bones, the teeth, and key oral structures too. Which means you need treatment that resets the position of your smile and allows you to obtain treatment and better facial esthetics as well. Our team has experience in treating facial and intraoral lacerations, knocked out teeth, and fractures in the facial and jaw bones.

Treating Soft Tissue Concerns

With soft tissue concerns, we want to make sure that in addition to the visible injuries to your face, that there are not also complications with the facial nerves, salivary ducts and glands, and other sensitive portions of facial structure. Our team will conduct a thorough examination and suture the areas closed so they can heal properly and restore the function and beauty of your smile.

Care for Bone injuries

Our team can stabilize and repair the broken or fractured portions of facial and jawbone structure. If you have knocked out teeth, we can restore them into proper position if you’ve saved them and brought them to the office with you. We can also use dental implants to replace what has been lost, rebuilding the smile and resetting oral structures to ensure proper healing and optimal results. For broken or fractured teeth, we can employ endodontic treatment to treat and preserve them, so you don’t lose additional teeth. Our team can repair and reset structures using wires, plates, and screws.

If you have any questions about how our team can repair common lacerations and injuries to the face and jaw, or about addressing damaged or missing teeth then contact our team of talented and skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
