Traumatic Facial Injuries in Northern Virginia

Traumatic injuries run the gamut from minor lacerations and injuries to the teeth to complex fractures of the jaw and facial bones. The most serious injuries are usually seen in emergency rooms and treated in local hospitals. However, simple jaw fractures and injuries involving damage to the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth and adjacent lip structures may be treated in our oral surgery offices in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge. Prompt suturing of lip lacerations will help ensure a more “cosmetic” result.

In injuries in which teeth have been displaced or knocked out, prompt treatment is of the essence. If possible, rinse the tooth and replace it in the socket. Alternatively, place the tooth or teeth in salt water or milk. The tooth or teeth will need to be repositioned and splinted in place as soon as possible. Contact us or your personal dentist immediately for prompt treatment of these injuries.

What types of injuries are there?

Maxillofacial trauma spans a wide range of injuries, from soft tissue injuries which affect the gums and skin, to bone injuries and injuries to special regions such as the eyes, nerves, or salivary glands.

What should I do if I lose a tooth?

If your tooth is knocked out, you should not wipe it off. This may remove remnants of the ligament that is necessary for the success of replanting the tooth. Instead, place the tooth in milk or salt water and see a dentist or oral surgeon as soon as possible.

I have been a patient for many years. Whenever I have needed a tooth removed I have gone to them. My experience has been pain free during the procedure and very little pain or swelling after. I would highly recommend the doctors at Northern Virginia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.

I was referred to NVOMSA by our family dentist, and I have t say I was very impressed with Dr. Zadeh and his staff. My son had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and had a great experience. The procedure took about 1/2 and hour and my son is recovering very well, miniaml swelling. Overall and excellent experience. They did a great job with my son’s wisdom teeth extractions.
