If you aren't sure when it is realistic to turn to your oral surgeon, here are some of the types of injuries that they commonly help correct.
If You Experienced Any of These Types of Trauma, An Oral Surgeon Can HelpFor people who have been in some type of an accident where their teeth were directly impacted, you should definitely turn to an oral surgeon for help. They can correct the problems, restore your teeth or use implants to help you have the ability to chew and speak, and help restore your confidence.
Lacerations of the face, whether they were inside the mouth or outside, can also be helped by turning to an oral surgeon. They can stitch up anything that was cut open, plus address any oral trauma that occurred. Their knowledge of the head and face makes them uniquely qualified to help.
Knocked out teeth sometimes need to come to an oral surgeon to be placed back in. If the socket is broken or swollen too much to place the tooth back in, an oral surgeon can help get the tooth in surgically, to hopefully, save the tooth.
Facial fractures are also often sent to oral surgeons. They can help place bone grafts, restore teeth if necessary, and help to rebuild the structure of your face.
When you have suffered an injury to your face, don't hesitate to contact our office. They have the ability to help where other doctors and dentists may not be as qualified.
