Chicago Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are experts in treating dental injury (broken and avulsed teeth-knocked out tooth) and facial trauma, including fractures of the upper and lower jaws (broken jaw), nasal fractures (broken nose), orbital fractures(broken eye sockets), and cosmetic management of lip lacerations (cuts), and facial lacerations. Their knowledge of how jaws come together is critical when repairing complex facial fractures and performing jaw surgery.
Trauma does not only result from major events like physical confrontations or automobile accidents. Childhood injuries caused by skateboards, sports, or bicycle accidents frequently involve dental or maxillofacial trauma. Younger children often sustain damage to teeth or supporting structures from falls. Such injuries can usually be effectively treated in the office, avoiding costly emergency room visits. At ORA® we will employ various safe and effective sedation techniques to deliver prompt, comfortable and successful treatment.
We understand that at times of injury, people are often quite vulnerable, so our team at ORA® Oral Surgery & Implant Studio in Chicago, Illinois is here for you to offer support and to guide you through the process of recovery. At ORA®, we not only have superior imaging for dento-facial injuries with our iCat 3-D CT scanner, but as a dual-degree oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Koos has the training and extensive experience to expertly manage your dental and facial injuries.
