Dental and Maxillofacial Trauma
There are a variety of dental and maxillofacial traumas, which can occur to the soft tissues of the mouth, teeth, bones in the jaw, and bones of the face, generally associated in our country with automobile accidents, interpersonal violence, accidents, sports as well as other causes.
The treatment of facial bones, teeth and mouth tissues should be treated by a maxillofacial surgeon, since it is only this specialist who has the highest level of training, as well as the necessary experience in treating the bones of the face, teeth and tissues of the mouth. The specialized training of maxillofacial surgeons, combines six years of dentistry studies with over four years of subsequent specialty training, specifically for handling these conditions. Since we are very familiar with the teeth in the maxillary jaw, when we perform a reconstruction of the jawbone, we ensure that we have the adequate knowledge and know the exact locations of dental and bone relationships.
