Facial Trauma

    Facial Trauma

    Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specially trained to manage and treat facial trauma, and Dr. Jesin has had years of hands-on experience in hospital and emergency room settings to repair and heal facial injuries with the least amount of visible scarring. At our practice, you will experience close, personal care by a skilled team that is dedicated to your very best result. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue (skin and gums), bones, and injuries to regions such as the eyes, facial nerves, or the salivary glands. We treat many types of facial trauma injuries at our practice including facial fractures, lacerations, and dental injuries — for more extreme injuries or injuries that occur after-hours, you should go to the nearest hospital emergency room for treatment from the oral and maxillofacial surgeon on call. We will do everything in our power to see you in our office as quickly as possible in the event of a facial injury.

    We understand that facial injuries are extremely stressful, and we want you to know that whatever the cause of your injury, we offer advanced treatments to restore your oral function and facial aesthetics. Dr. Jesin will evaluate your condition and recommend the best course of treatment for you.

    Some of the most common types of facial injuries include

    • Facial lacerations (cuts)
    • Intraoral lacerations (cuts inside the mouth)
    • Avulsed (knocked-out) teeth
    • Fractured facial bones
    • Fractured jaws

    What do I do if I knock out a tooth?

    If you knock out your tooth, place it in saliva or whole milk as quickly as possible and call us or go to the emergency room to have it re-inserted into your tooth socket. Do not attempt to wipe off the tooth, as remnants of the ligament that hold the tooth in the jaw are critical to a successful re-insertion.
