Fortunately, we have experience helping patients with minor and complex cases of facial trauma. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about treatment options and how we transform your smile following severe injuries.

Causes and Complications

The severity of your facial trauma could vary. For example, this could refer to a missing tooth, one knocked out during an injury or an accident. This could also mean more complex issues, such as severe facial lacerations, fractures in facial bones or jawbones, or the loss of several teeth at once. Without treatment, this could mean major issues with the function of your smile, a decline in oral health, and embarrassment regarding your appearance. Instead of letting your overall health and quality of life suffer, you should talk to our team about possible solutions.

Planning Your Custom Treatment

Our team is skilled and experienced in the treatment of complex facial trauma. In fact, we have experience in helping people in a way that improves overall facial esthetics afterward. Our doctors are part of the Trauma Team at the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, and have the knowledge to help treat your situation. To begin, we will conduct a detailed examination with digital scanning technology, so we can examine your entire smile and facial structure to assess the cause and extent of your injuries. We then plan the treatment with precision and accuracy. To ensure you’re comfortable, we can offer not only a local anesthesia, but sedation to help you enter a calm and relaxed state as well.

Treating Your Smile

We will often begin by repositioning your natural teeth into their proper position. Once your teeth are restored or replaced, we can build the framework of your smile around them, putting facial bones and jaw structure into proper positions. This restores the beauty of your face and smile as the treated areas heal.
