Facial Trauma And Jaw Surgery

No other part of the body is as conspicuous, unique, or aesthetically significant as the face. Because an individual’s self-image and self-esteem are often derived from his or her own facial appearance, any injury affecting these features requires particular attention.

Dr. Wolfrom is specially trained to repair soft tissue facial lacerations, facial bone fractures, and dental trauma. Orthognathic surgery refers to the procedure needed to fix abnormalities of the maxilla (upper jaw), the mandible (lower jaw), and/or the chin.  Jaw discrepancies can cause facial pain, chewing and speech problems and alter ones facial appearance.
