As surgeons with a combined dental, medical, and surgical background and training, Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are uniquely qualified experts at treating dental and facial trauma including fractures of the upper and lower jaws, nose, and orbits, and cosmetic management of facial lacerations. They rely on the knowledge of how the jaws come together and the crucial role of dental occlusion as the foundation for surgical repair.
Although trauma is usually associated with motor vehicle accidents and physical altercations, dental or maxillofacial trauma can also result from such things as childhood injuries caused by bicycles, sports, or falls. Kids can be especially prone to sustaining damage to their teeth or supporting structures from falls. Thankfully, such injuries can usually be effectively treated in the office, avoiding costly emergency room visits. We understand that sustaining facial injuries can be quite traumatic both physically and emotionally. That is why our team at Pacific Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will be here to help offer support and to guide you through the process of recovery.
Dr. Salib and our staff will employ various safe and effective sedation techniques to deliver prompt, comfortable and successful treatment of such injuries. Additionally, our state-of-the-art environment at Pacific Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery includes such diagnostic tools as our 3-D CT scanner which allows for superior imaging of dento-facial injuries. We will do our best to work with your medical insurance carrier when possible when addressing such injuries.
