Oral & Maxillofacial Trauma can be caused by accident, disease, or even a birth defect.
Dr Scuba is trained to perform the reconstruction needed to repair the trauma. This includes procedures to repair simple and complex soft tissue injuries and lacerations of the skin, face, lips, nose, eyelids, ears, and mouth. It also includes repair of fractures of the entire facial skeleton, including eye sockets cheekbones, and jaws. Stabilization and/or re-plantation of loosened teeth may also be a part this treatment. Most surgeons of this type will also offer revision and repair of previously treated facial injuries, scars, or other post-traumatic conditions.
