Types of Facial Trauma
There are many types of facial trauma cases that Dr. El Deeb treats. These include but are not limited to:
- Fractured facial bones (nose, eye socket or cheek)
- Fractured Jaw
- Facial lacerations
- Oral lacerations
- Knocked out teeth
There are three main classifications of facial trauma. These classifications can vary case by case but are used to determine the extent of the injury and necessary procedure to treat it.
Soft Tissue Injuries
For lacerations of the face and intraoral cavities, typically the fastest and best treatment is sutures. These can have cosmetic consequences, so Dr. El Deeb takes extra precautions to treat the facial nerves and glands throughout.
Maxillofacial Bone Injuries
Depending on the severity of the facial bone fracture, different treatments will be employed. Because a standard cast cannot be applied to the face, other means such as wiring are implemented to stabilize the facial bones. Sometimes, small surgical plates are inserted to fixate the bones until healing. There are instances where wiring of the jaw is necessary to heal and can drastically improve the healing period for patients.
Teeth & Other Dental Injuries
Injuries of the teeth and tooth structures are grouped in a separate category and can have the most variance. Typically, a knocked-out tooth would be treated with the same care as a facial trauma injury, because of the cosmetic implication. If the tooth is kept in milk or salt water immediately after the injury, Dr. El Deeb may be able to save the tooth and reinsert it. If you have experienced facial trauma, and this is an emergency, call our staff immediately to be treated.
