In cases of serious trauma to the face, there may be multiple fractures of the facial bones. Commonly fractured bones may involve that of the forehead, cheek, nose and lower jaw. These fractures if not treated effectively have the potential to lead to long-term deformities of the face.
We use 3D Cone Beam CT scan reconstructions, the latest revolutionary cutting edge technology in maxillofacial imaging, for diagnostic support and advanced planning in cases of fractures of the face. This technology enables fast, easy and quick visualization of craniofacial structures with unparalleled precision. These advanced modalities help in complete and successful rehabilitation of trauma and injuries.
Patients who seek our expert care not only include those who come to us first hand but also those who sought treatment elsewhere & were not satisfied with surgery outcome both on the esthetic and functional fields. Dr. Balaji’s adeptness at trauma care management and facial fractures has seen success even in exceptionally difficult and complex cases.
Shown here are photographs of a patient who sustained multiple fractures of the lower jaw in an accident. After evaluation using digital X-rays, the fractured bone segments were fixed with bone plates.
