Accidents happen, and sometimes, reconstructive oral surgery is necessary to correct the damage caused by falls, sports injuries, and work-related accidents. We understand that when a facial trauma injury occurs, it can be scary and stressful, and we want you to know that at our practice, you will experience personal care by a skilled team that is dedicated to restoring your oral function while making sure you have excellent aesthetic results. As skilled oral surgeons, Dr. Baker and Dr. Jepsen can expertly treat your injuries and restore your appearance — they have mastered the techniques to get you back to looking and feeling as good as new. We treat many types of facial trauma injuries at our practice including facial fractures, lacerations, and dental injuries and provide multiple anesthesia options to ensure your comfort every step of the way.
Injuries commonly treated by reconstructive oral surgery fall into two categories: soft tissue injuries, including trauma to soft tissues like the skin or gums, and fractures, which are injuries to bony tissues. The injuries that oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specially trained to treat include
- Facial lacerations (cuts)
- Intraoral lacerations (cuts inside the mouth)
- Dislodged teeth
- Fractures of the teeth, jaw, or facial bones
Should you suffer an injury, will do everything in our power to see you in one of our Pocatello or Blackfoot offices as quickly as possible. If your tooth cannot be saved after an injury, your oral surgeon will discuss your tooth replacement options with you, including dental implants.
