Jaw & Facial Fracture Surgery
Affordable Jaw & Facial Fracture Surgery in Tulsa
Whether your fracture is the result of a sports injury, motor vehicle accident or another trauma, at Stonewood Hills Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, we are confident we can repair it. With over 15 years experience with facial and jaw fractures, Dr. Cullens can fix most broken noses, cheekbones, and jaws as an outpatient surgery.
At Stonewood Hills, we use the 14-day Rule for repairing broken bones. This means that we can achieve the most favorable outcomes within 14 days of the accident but our goal is to treat all fractures in 7-10 days. The sooner we repair the fracture, the more promising the results so don’t think you have to wait.
We want to see as soon as possible to determine the best course of treatment for you. We also want to start you on antibiotics, pain medicine, and nutritional support immediately to promote healing. In promoting hearing, facial swelling will reduce faster and allow to an easier and better repair. This is especially true for swollen eyes.If the bone under the eye is broken, we usually schedule surgery at a local hospital and not in the clinic.
If you have a jaw fracture, you may not need to have your jaw wired shut like most patients are led to believe. Wiring the jaw shut is a successful technique but it is extremely impractical to lock your mouth closed for 6 weeks. Instead, we can repair your jaw with fixation plates so that you can eat SOFT food the next day. The fixation plates do not need to be removed after the bone heals.
If you had a surgery by another doctor and you are unhappy with the results, please call us for a second opinion. We can remove old fixation plates and reset the jaw so your teeth come together better. We can also adjust bone or add material to improve the shape of your cheeks or chin. We provide custom prosthesis design from Germany with KLS Martin implants for complex cases. At Stonewood Hills, we have the patient’s best interests in mind and will always ensure we are providing premium care and patient satisfaction.Make an Appointment
