Dentoalveolar Trauma

Dentoalveolar Trauma

Dentoalveolar trauma is the technical term for injuries to the teeth, jaw, and supportive soft tissues. Dentoalveolar trauma often results from sports injuries, falls, direct impact to the face or jaw, and vehicular accidents. Trauma to the teeth or jaw can result in injuries ranging from avulsed teeth (knocked out teeth) to dislodged or loose teeth (luxation), to teeth that have been forcefully pushed into the socket (intrusion). Trauma may also result in a broken or dislocated jaw or lacerations to the soft tissues (cheeks, gums).

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

Pre–prosthetic surgeries provided by Oral and Facial Surgery Associates include all procedures necessary to prepare patients for dental implants or implant-supported restorations such as dentures or implants. Pre-prosthetic surgeries may be necessary to smooth or reshape the alveolar ridge, remove excess bone, extract teeth, or strengthen the jaw bone (grafting).

Additional Procedures

Impacted Tooth & Tooth Exposure

An impacted tooth is a tooth that fails to fully pass through the gums.

Impacted wisdom and cuspid (or canine) teeth are fairly common. To correct impacted teeth, there are a few treatment options. For impacted wisdom teeth, the most common procedure is extraction. For impacted canine teeth, several treatment modalities are available. Orthodontics (braces) can be used to open space for proper eruption. Primary (baby) teeth can either be extracted or surgically exposed to allow for the placement of an orthodontic bracket to help align the teeth.

Tooth Extractions

A tooth that can not be saved with restorative materials may need to be removed. First, the area will be numbed with anesthesia. The tooth is then loosened with a special dental instrument known as an elevator. After the tooth is loosened from the socket, it is removed. Stitches may be necessary after the removal of a tooth.

Sinus Lift
A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the premolar and molar areas of your mouth. To add bone, an incision is made where the premolar and molar teeth were previously located. Once the bone is exposed, a small circular shape is made in the bone to access the sinus. Once the sinus is accessed, the sinus membrane is gently pushed up and away from the upper jaw. Once this is done, bone graft material is placed into the sinus space to change the shape and provide support. Once the bone is in place, the incision is closed and the healing process begins.
Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Growth Factors and Platelet Rich Fibrin are a form of mixed gel that can be applied directly into tooth sockets and other sites. Placing this material in tooth sockets after tooth extractions can improve soft tissue healing and positively influence bone regeneration. These techniques offer a new approach to tissue regeneration. PRP derives from the centrifugation of a patient’s own blood and contains growth factors that influence wound healing. This is important in tissue repairing mechanisms. The use of PRP in surgical practice could have beneficial outcomes, reducing bleeding and enhancing soft tissue healing and bone regeneration.

Frequently Asked Questions about Oral Surgery

What types of anesthesia are available?
Oral and Facial Surgery Associates offers local anesthesia, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.
Will I need to be hospitalized for pre-prosthetic surgeries?
No. All pre-prosthetic oral surgeries are performed in our office on an outpatient basis.
Why would surgery be necessary before receiving dental implants?
Periodontal disease, or living with missing teeth for an extended period causes the jawbone to recede. Surgery to strengthen the bone so that it can support a dental implant is needed when the jaw has suffered bone loss.
Do you accept CareCredit for treatment for dental trauma?
Yes. Oral and Facial Surgery Associates, LLC accepts CareCredit for all procedures. Ask our front desk about additional financing that may be available.
What determines if an injured tooth needs to be extracted?
If an injured tooth cannot be saved, it will need to be extracted. Common reasons that a tooth must be extracted include a crack in the tooth that extends below the gum line and a tooth that has split completely in two. In some cases, a broken jaw will require tooth extraction as well.
What causes benign tumors to develop in the mouth?
Many people develop benign oral growths. Some of the causes include oral infections, warts, repeated trauma (rubbing/biting), genetic predisposition, cysts, or tobacco use.
How long does it take to recover from a broken jaw?
Recovering from a broken jaw may take up to six months, or as few as 4-8 weeks. The recovery period is dependent on the type of fracture, severity of the fracture, and location of the fracture.
How soon after an injury to the mouth should I see a dentist?
You should see a dentist as soon as possible. If you sustained other injuries, you need to seek medical care first.
