Facial Trauma Procedures

Facial trauma can manifest in a variety of ways. Each surgical procedure offers a different approach to treating these issues. During your consultation with Dr. Weber, you’ll learn more about which treatment option is best suited to address your specific concerns.

  • Facial Reconstruction: After the initial trauma has been addressed, your surgeon may perform reconstructive procedures to restore aesthetics and function. This may involve bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, and other techniques.
  • Avulsed Teeth: If teeth are knocked out due to trauma, they can often be reimplanted if conditions of the surrounding teeth are suitable.
  • Maxillary Fractures (Upper Jaw): Fractures of the upper jaw may require surgical treatment to ensure proper alignment and stability. Techniques, such as utilizing plates and screws, may be employed.
  • Complex Cases: In situations involving extensive facial trauma affecting multiple areas, your surgeon may perform comprehensive procedures to address panfacial fractures. This requires a coordinated approach to stabilize and reconstruct various facial structures.
  • Closed Reduction: Non-surgical techniques, like closed reduction, may be employed for certain nasal fractures. This involves manipulating the nasal bones back into their proper position without making external incisions.
  • Open Reduction: For more severe fractures of the cheekbones, surgery may be required. Open reduction involves making incisions to access and realign the fractured bones, often using hardware like plates and screws.
  • Mandibular Fracture: Surgical intervention may be required to stabilize and align fractures of the mandible. This could involve the use of plates, screws, or wiring to secure the bones in the correct position.
