Complicated Cases & Facial Injury Treatment

Many dental treatments can be performed by a general dentist, but complicated cases are often referred to an oral surgeon for consultation. Complications can arise if a tooth is impacted and needs to be extracted, or if trauma has damaged the face and jaw. An oral surgeon ensures your comfort before, during, and after the dental services are completed.

FACIAL TRAUMA

Sometimes, the most traumatic aspect after an accident is the concern about your appearance. Facial trauma can lead to lifelong problems and is a complex part of your body to reconstruct. Our team at Arbor View is fully equipped and ready to help you to restore your smile, function, and personal confidence!

A surgeon working on facial trauma cases not only needs to be experienced with emergency care, but it is also important to consider long-term rehabilitation and reconstruction. Depending on the injury, a surgical plan will include treatments for everything from lacerations to fractured bones and knocked out teeth. Both bone and soft tissue treatments need to be paired for functionality and aesthetics.

RECOVERY AFTER ORAL SURGERY

Choosing an experienced oral surgeon reduces the likelihood that complications will occur after the surgery. But there is some risk involved with any surgery, which is why you should follow Dr. Jason’s recommendations for recovery after oral surgery.

Most people have pain and swelling after oral surgery, which can be treated with pain medication and ice packs to manage the swelling. If you suspect that you are experiencing complications after oral surgery, then it is essential that you contact our office right away to see if further treatment is required.

Jason Schrotenboer DDS MD
/ SKROH-ten-BOR /

We call him Dr. Jason, who was raised in the Holland area of Michigan — voted one of the happiest places in the U.S. (Maybe it’s the tulips, maybe the micro-breweries?)

Now, a transplant to Chicago, he’s in his happy place when he’s working with patients. His early experience as an oral surgery patient guided his future career path with his then surgeon-turned-mentor (a Northwestern trained surgeon, in fact!).

Today, that experience has groomed his practice and patient interactions. “Being a surgical patient has given me an advantageous perspective on being a surgeon. There’s so much more to providing care than textbook learning and technical training.” This early experience combined with his broad range of training, works to make your care more seamless and stress-free. Referring doctors and patients alike trust his reassuring demeanor and broad-scope training for treating conditions of the mouth, jaw, face and neck.
