Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specifically trained to treat and repair facial trauma including any injury to the mouth, face, or jaw. At Davis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, Dr. Davis is skilled in helping treat facial and lip lacerations; knocked out teeth; broken facial bones including cheekbones, forehead, nose, and eye sockets; upper and lower jaw breaks.
A qualified surgeon like Dr. Davis will evaluate your facial injury and classify the damage that has been done. Once a classification has been identified (soft tissue injuries vs. bone injuries) you will then be able to move forward with your treatment plan.
What To Consider When Choosing an Oral Surgeon
Facial injuries are very traumatic for patients not only physically but emotionally as well. It’s important that you entrust your care to the right oral surgeon, so you have peace of mind that you are placing your care in the right hands.
Some things you should consider when looking for an oral surgeon to treat your facial injuries:
- Education – Make sure during your consultation with your local oral surgeon that he or she has the educational background and training that will give you peace of mind and the results that you’re looking for.
- Experience – This is probably the most important criteria to consider when choosing an oral surgeon for your facial injury. It’s vital that you know how much experience your surgeon has and if he or she specializes in a specific type of surgery.
- Skill Level – Learn about your surgeon’s techniques and don’t be afraid to ask for before and after picture galleries so you can see the results yourself.
Once you’ve selected the right oral surgeon for your facial procedure, make sure to discuss all the specifics and what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. If you’re feeling anxious about your surgery, remember to discuss sedation options too.
