Our doctor can repair your face by suturing and will also inspect and treat injuries to structures such as facial nerves, and salivary glands.
Teeth injuries require the skills and expertise of various dental specialists. The oral surgeons at our clinic are trained to treat fractures in the supporting bone or replanting displaced or knocked out teeth. Injuries to the teeth are treated by splinting, a procedure where your teeth are wired or bonded together.
Knocked out a tooth? Make sure you place the tooth in salt water or milk. The sooner you get your displaced tooth re-inserted, the better the chances of it surviving. Avoid wiping the tooth off as remnants of the ligament which holds the tooth are vital to the success of replanting your tooth.
