Jaw and Facial Injury

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Indianapolis

While not all facial injuries are extensive, they can be complex since they affect an area of the body that is critical to breathing, eating, speaking and seeing. Trauma can lead to tooth position change or even dislodgement of teeth. In some cases, facial injury can produce jaw fractures.

Even in the case of a moderately cut lip, the expertise of our surgeons is indispensable. If sutures are needed, placement must be precise to create the desired cosmetic result. A good rule of thumb is this: Never take any facial injury lightly.
