Looking For Facial Trauma Treatment In Lakeway, Texas?
Were you in an accident or victim of an attack and suffered facial trauma? Facial trauma is caused by blunt or penetrating trauma to the face that includes damage to the upper and/or lower jaw, cheek, nose, or forehead. Symptoms of facial trauma include a change of sensation in the face, deformed or uneven facial bones, missing teeth, double vision, trouble breathing due to nasal swelling, and vision problems, due to swelling around the eyes.
If you receive an injury to your face and experience any of the symptoms above, it is important that you make an appointment to be seen or go and receive emergency care. Untreated facial trauma can lead to future complications.
At Austin Oral Surgery, we offer a full range of oral and maxillofacial treatments including dental implants for missing teeth, and corrective jaw surgery. We offer long-term reconstructive treatment, emergency care, and acute treatment for facial trauma in the Lakeway area.
Restore Your Smile
Studies show that our smile affects the way that we see ourselves. When a person experiences facial trauma, their self-esteem can be negatively affected. For the best results in treating facial trauma, you need an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
Facial trauma can include many things. It can include broken or deformed jaws due to injury, missing teeth due to injury or accident, or broken bones in the face. Treatment can vary depending on the facial trauma. Many instances of facial trauma, such as missing teeth and broken bones, should be treated right away.
If you are seen at the emergency room, you will come into contact with many emergency providers. One provider may be an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. This person will provide emergency care for your facial trauma. It can take up to a year to fully treat a facial injury. It is important that you continue treatment outside of the emergency scenario.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons can offer acute care such as treating loose, broken, or missing teeth or stabilizing fractured bones. Teeth can be repaired or replaced in a variety of ways including mini-dental implants, dentures, crowns, and other fittings. Goals for treatment include fixing broken facial bones and replacing missing or broken teeth. If these injuries are left untreated, they can cause long-term problems such as TMJ.
Austin Oral Surgery: A Name You Can Trust
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons complete four years of dental college and a four year or longer residency in a hospital. This residency exposes the surgeon to many fields including emergency medicine and plastic surgery. This exposure creates a unique and solid foundation for treating facial trauma and any needed reconstruction. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association that are surgically trained in a hospital-based residency. Their training focuses almost exclusively on the hard and soft tissue of the mouth and face.
Austin Oral Surgery offers 45 years of combined experience to treat your facial trauma and restore your smile. Facial injuries are complex even when they are not an injury that requires emergency treatment. It’s important to see an oral and maxillofacial surgeon that is experienced. Take stitches for example, an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon can place the stitches to minimize scarring. This takes more expertise since the injury is on the face.
