The consequences can range from impacted teeth to severely injured bones and skin in the face. Accordingly, such injuries are typically categorized either as a soft tissue injury, bone injury or special injury. In all of these cases, a facial trauma surgeon will be needed in Hattiesburg. The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center, P.A. can provide treatment for the following:
- Broken tooth

- Upper or lower fractured jaw
- Fractured facial bones such as eye socket, nose or cheek
- Avulsed teeth
- Intraoral lacerations
Soft Tissue & Bone Injuries
Maxillofacial reconstruction and rehabilitation are often required of soft tissue injuries. In these cases, repair is completed through suturing the affected area. We perform this task with the cosmetic result and maintenance of nerves in mind. We will treat all injuries and affected glands and nerves.
Repairing Damage to Teeth
A dental surgeon can provide the treatment you need for injury to your teeth. If yours have been avulsed, or knocked out, we can treat the problem by splinting the teeth. In the meantime, if you find yourself in this situation, you should try to place the teeth in milk or salt water.
