Treating Facial Injuries At Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry

Common Facial Injuries

Whether the result of a sports accident, an assault, a fall, or a car crash, facial injuries often require surgery and dental work to repair. Some of the more common types of facial injuries are knocked out teeth, fractured jaw, fractured cheek bones or eye socket, broken nose, facial lacerations, or lacerations of the mouth. The type of injury will determine the type of medical professionals who will need to treat them.

The Road To Recovery

When the injury is to teeth, jaw, or the soft tissues of the mouth, facial trauma treatment will include dental work and potentially oral surgery and orthodontic treatment. Sometimes, teeth that are knocked loose can be saved, and what you do when that happens is crucial. If possible, put the tooth back in place. If not, store it in milk, but do not attempt to clean it or handle it by the root, and get to Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry as quickly as you can.

The Role Of Dr. Holsteen

Dr. Holsteen has experience in treating facial injuries, so if an injury has damaged your teeth, jaws, or soft tissue, come to Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry, where he can perform the necessary emergency dental work and help you form a plan for how to complete anything else your recovery requires. If you have any questions about what to do in the event of a facial injury, call us at 719-598-3502 or email us.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
