Mending Pieces of Your Heart from the Roots with Facial Trauma NYC
POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2011 AT 10:49 AM by Dr. Mark Stein
Accidents which result in facial trauma in NYC often impact patients physically and emotionally. Depending on the individual injury, facial trauma can potentially affect a person’s vision, speaking, and swallowing. The patient’s physical appearance may also be affected depending on how the trauma is treated and how well the injuries heal. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. takes these variables into consideration during facial trauma repair in New York City to ensure the best possible outcome for your injured facial features, both functionally and aesthetically. Swift medical attention by an oral surgeon is extremely important after the emergency situation has been stabilized. Dr. Stein can treat a wide range of facial traumas, including facial lacerations, oral lacerations, broken and knocked-out teeth, facial bone fractures, broken noses, fractures to the cheekbones and eye sockets, and fractured jaws. An accident that involves facial trauma can be painful and distressing, but New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides the treatment needed to repair both the damage to your teeth and your peace of mind.
Patients who endure facial trauma in New York which involves knocked-out teeth can salvage their own tooth and potentially have it replanted into the mouth if specific steps are taken. Patients should pick the tooth up by the crown without touching the roots and place the entire tooth in salt water or milk to transport it. Never touch the tooth by the roots even if intending to wipe off dirt or clean the tooth. Touching the roots in any fashion may dislodge integral ligament structures necessary to successfully replanting the tooth. The roots are the key factor to preserving and mending a knocked out tooth with the original tooth. Call Dr. Stein as quickly as possible once the emergency situation which caused the facial trauma is handled, so your tooth can be replanted.
Dr. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M.D. performs such a wide variety of services for facial trauma in order to provide patients with the excellent care and latest techniques needed to treat their individual injuries. Facial lacerations, bone injuries, broken jaws, and knocked-out teeth are all treated differently, and New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides the necessary care for the many possibilities of facial trauma.
