Facial trauma injuries are always unexpected and stressful — thankfully, there are many advanced treatments available to restore function and aesthetics when an injury has occurred. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Esmail is the ideal medical professional to treat your facial injury case and ensure optimal healing for your injuries with the least amount of visible scarring. He will do everything he can to attend to your injury case as quickly as possible. During his training, he completed a hospital-based surgical residency, allowing him to address all the issues that arise in a trauma setting.
Dr. Esmail is uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma, with the goal of treating your injuries in a way that ensures your facial appearance is minimally affected. Some of the types of facial trauma we treat at Abbotsford Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Centre include the following:
- Facial lacerations
- Intraoral lacerations
- Avulsed (knocked out) teeth
- Fractured facial bones
- Fractured jaws
Facial injuries include soft tissue injuries (skin and gums), bone injuries (fractures), and injuries to sensitive regions such as the eyes, facial nerves, or the salivary glands. For many of the less severe injuries, we provide treatment in our practice. However, for more extreme cases, or injuries that occur after-hours, you should go immediately to the emergency room for treatment.
If your tooth is knocked out, place it in salt water or milk and call us as soon as possible — the sooner the tooth is re-inserted into its socket, the better the chance it will survive. Never attempt to wipe off the tooth as remnants of the ligament that hold the tooth in the jaw are vital to re-inserting it successfully.
