Our Board-Certified Oral Surgeons Treat Facial Injuries
Whether you have a major injury that requires hospitalization or a more minor injury, oral and maxillofacial surgeons specialize in treating the head, neck, face, and mouth following a traumatic incident. Many oral surgeons are staffed at local hospitals to treat emergency cases. Dr. Lieblick and Dr. Rehrer use advanced 3D scanning to assess your needs following trauma and monitor progress throughout recovery. The goal of facial trauma treatment is to ensure the facial features regain proper function with aesthetically pleasing results.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have undergone intensive and unique training during residency that allows them to address a wide range of dental and surgical problems. Each facial trauma case is unique, and our surgeons will evaluate your needs and design a custom treatment plan for your needs. Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons has offices located in Gresham, The Dalles, Milwaukie, OR, and Camas, WA, to care for our patients.
If you are experiencing an emergency, go to the nearest emergency room to receive care from the oral surgeon on call.
Types of Facial Trauma
Some of the more common facial trauma injuries include:
- Avulsed (knocked-out) teeth
- Facial lacerations
- Fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)
- Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose, eye socket, or forehead)
- Intraoral lacerations
Facial Trauma Treatment
Numerous events can contribute to facial trauma injuries, including automobile accidents, work-related injuries, falls, sports injuries, physical assaults, and accidents at home. The kind of injury incurred will determine which treatment that is necessary to correct the problem. Minor injuries such as knocked-out teeth or facial lacerations may only require the placement of dental implants or sutures, while serious incidents may involve a more complex approach, including orthognathic surgery. Prior to any surgical appointment, we will discuss your options for anesthesia so that you remain comfortable and at ease throughout treatment.
Failure to treat facial trauma can result in impacted teeth, misalignment of the jaw and bite, resorption of the jaw bone, the development of TMJ disorders, and facial discomfort or disfigurement. Dr. Lieblick and Dr. Rehrer are on staff at several local hospitals and are on call to deliver emergency room coverage for any facial injuries that may occur. At Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we are passionate about helping to restore oral and maxillofacial function and aesthetics to every patient who has been in a trauma situation.
