Facial Injury Oral Surgery in Scottsdale
Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery | Scottsdale, Phoenix, Avondale, AZ
Dr. Robert Guyette is a board certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon who has treated hundreds of facial trauma patients.
Trauma remains a major health and social issue in the United States. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people of all ages sustain facial injuries from automobile collisions, firearms, athletic activities, or altercations. The result may be soft tissue damage to the face and scalp or fractures of the facial bones.
After an injury to the face, most people should go to the emergency room to seek medical attention and to rule out injuries that may be life-threatening. Many times a CT scan may be required. After an initial evaluation, the patient will likely be instructed to contact a Maxillofacial & Oral surgeon for further diagnosis and treatment. See facial trauma before/after photos, check out reviews and be sure to contact us to schedule an appointment.
