When you hurt your face, it may be instinct to go see your primary care physician first. However, that may not get you the quickest treatment. One thing that oral surgeons specialize in is facial injury.
We train in helping manage facial trauma, not just caring for your teeth. If you suffered from an injury to the face, we may be able to help you more effectively and quicker than your regular doctor could. The only way to know is if you give us a call and let us know what happened.
Some of the Injuries We Can Help With
Tears to the skin anywhere on the face, especially around the mouth, is something you want to come to us for. We can help put the skin back together and make sure none of the tearing did any damage to your teeth, gums, sinuses, and nasal passages. If you did cause any damage here, it is best that we do what we can to stitch it up right away so it can effectively heal.
We can also help if you were hit in the mouth. This may involve loose or knocked out teeth, cuts to your lips, gums, tongue, or cheeks, or bruising or swelling near sensitive oral tissues. We understand how each of these types of tissue connects to each other. If you want the best functional results after any type of facial injury, then you want to come in and see us.
Our offices are here, ready whenever the unexpected becomes your reality. Call us and let us know what happened. We can then coordinate anyone we need to have around to provide you with the quality of care you need. Reach out to us today, and let us be there to help you feel better.
