Facial Trauma Reconstruction
What is Facial Trauma Reconstruction?
Dealing with the aftermath of facial trauma can be devastating for a lot of people. Not only may you be dealing with lost or severely damaged teeth, but there may be damage to your jaw and underlying bone. We offer reconstruction options to help you get back to normal. We work on an individual basis to ensure that you are receiving the care that you need.
Why is Facial Trauma Reconstruction needed?
Facial trauma can cause both aesthetic and functionality problems. You might find it difficult to eat, chew and even speak because of the trauma. You might avoid smiling because of the aftermath of what you’re left with after being involved in some type of accident. You will find that you feel better and look better once reconstruction has been done.
Who is a candidate for Facial Trauma Reconstruction?
Facial trauma reconstruction is ideal for patients of any and all ages who have been involved in some type of accident that has caused their facial and dental health to be compromised. This might have been an accident while playing sports, a car accident or something else that has left you with broken, missing or damaged teeth and surrounding bone issues. We will carefully examine your teeth and jaw to determine if reconstruction is necessary and to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
What happens during the process of Facial Trauma Reconstruction?
Facial trauma reconstruction begins with a thorough consultation. This allows us to get to know you and your individual needs. We will take special x-rays to create a treatment plan to help bring your smile back to where it used to be. Reconstruction can involve surgery of different kinds, such as orthognathic surgery, bone grafting as well as dental implants. The process of reconstruction can take several weeks to a few months to complete. Our goal is to provide you with a full, healthy smile that you can feel proud to show off.
