Facial Trauma

Dr. Rivera Explains Treatment of Facial Trauma

 

Traumatic injuries that involve the face, jaws, and teeth are complex in nature.  Injuries to this part of the body involve an area that is critical to appearance, speaking, breathing, and eating.  This can be quite a stressful and difficult time for both the patient and the family.  Our team of surgeons has extensive training in all aspects of craniomaxillofacial trauma.  In addition to properly restoring your facial skeleton and cosmetically repairing lacerations, we are also uniquely qualified as dentists to properly restore your bite and chewing function.  We can replace avulsed or missing teeth with dental implants, as well.  Our surgeons have a thorough understanding of the anatomical and physiological complexities of this area, and understand your desire to get back to normal as soon as possible.  If you’ve suffered a traumatic injury, either recently or in the past, contact us today and find out how we can help you.
