What to Expect
The treatment you receive for your injury will depend heavily on your unique situation. Some patients can be treated here at our office while others could benefit more from receiving care at a hospital or surgical facility. First, we will assess your age, individual condition, the severity of your trauma, and placement of the injury before we create your personalized treatment plan. We will also ask about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and health concerns you may have. From there, we will run diagnostics and formulate a treatment plan to restore the look and function of your face, jaw, and mouth. Depending on your trauma, we may work alongside your dentist or another specialist to ensure that you receive the comprehensive care you require. To make sure that you're as comfortable as possible during your treatment, we will go over sedation options offered by our Pueblo, CO office.
Your recovery will vary depending on the injury you have endured and the treatment performed to restore your health. Once you have come around after your procedure, a member of our team will give you detailed instructions so that you can care for your incision sites properly as you heal. If further treatment is needed, these appointments will be scheduled accordingly by our office personnel. You will be asked to come in for a follow-up once your treatment has concluded so we can remove any wires, sutures, or other stabilization devices and monitor your progress. Depending on the trauma that was sustained, we may work with a restorative dentist or other professional to address your teeth. We encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions as you recover from your maxillofacial trauma surgery.
Depending on the injury sustained and your unique treatment plan, some of the costs for your maxillofacial trauma care may be covered by your insurance. To determine your coverage, a member of our team will get in touch with your provider and learn about your benefits. Your out-of-pocket costs will be made known to you promptly. We do everything in our power to ensure that you receive your necessary care at a cost that you feel comfortable with. If you are considering financing some of the costs for your treatment, our Pueblo, CO office partners with CareCredit®.
