|•||Facial and Intra-oral Lacerations: When placing sutures in facial lacerations, both inside and outside the mouth, we take several aspects into consideration. We consider the patient's end look and aesthetic, but we also consider the nerve placement, the salivary glands, and salivary ducts placement. Considering the patient's entire facial unit will make a significant difference in their long-term care.|
|•||Avulsed Teeth: You may be surprised to hear, but teeth that have been knocked out may be able to be placed right back in their socket if some criteria are met. A knocked out tooth should not be scrubbed or cleaned, this may remove important ligaments. A knocked out tooth should be held in your mouth, even better if it can be placed in the socket, or if the patient is unable to have an item in their mouth without the fear of swallowing, it can be placed ideally in milk, or at best water. Lastly, the patient needs to be seen as soon as possible, time is of the essence! If a knocked out tooth cannot be saved, there are some restoration options that we can discuss including a dental bridge, a partial, a denture, or dental implants.|
|•||Fractured Facial Bones: A patient may think that there is nothing that can be done about a broken cheekbone or eyebrow bone, but that is not entirely true. A broken facial bone can be correctly set, and when needed to be held in place by surgical means.|
|•||Fractured Jaw: A fractured or broken jaw requires surgery to be set in place. This work should be done only through an Oral Surgeon. In most cases, we will need to work closely with an Orthodontist for long-term realignment and correction.|
