When an individual gets into a car accident or suffers substantial trauma to the face, there are a number of different group of bones that may be affected by the resulting forces. As each major area of the face holds specific structure and function, the injuries may be creating a range of different consequences which may directly change a person's ability to perform particular actions.
A nasal fracture, or broken nose, is among the most common facial fracture
.Either breaking bone or cartilage, these injuries may cause displacement of the nose as well as blood loss, which depends in severity with the intensity of the trauma and whether mucus tissues was damaged.
Over the past ten years, I have also repaired check bone fractures with a resorabable plate and screw system composed of the polymer, Lacto Sorbs. These restorable plates and screws have been used in over 100,000 craniofacial cases since 1996 and has proven track record of safety and effectiveness. In properly selected check bone fractures. Lacto Sorbs plates and screws can provide good stable results. Plates of 2.0mm size are placed vertically along the posterior maxillary buttress (if possible) and obliquely from the zygoma to the perform aperture.(which is always possible). Plates smaller than 2.0mm are not of adequate strength. The cheek fractures that work best with this restorable fixation method are what I call simple fractures, where an intraoral approach with only one or two plates is all that is needed to adequately restore their pre-injury anatomic position.
A sinus augmentation is another procedure that can improve the success of dental implants. Sinus augmentations are necessary because tooth loss and gum dental
! can result in an implantation area with inadequate bone. Not enough bone means that the likelihood of implant success is slim. Sinus augmentation addresses this issue by raising the sinus floor to develop bone in the upper back jaw. This is done by creating an incision to lift the sinus cavity so the space can be filled with bone grafts. Like the ridge modification, this procedure takes at least six months to heal and will vary from patient to patient, but it's a common surgery that has good success rate.
Be sure to ask so you are not surprised when you get to the dentist.Medi-cal beneficiaries have their costs calculated every month by looking at your net income(after taxes) and dedicating what is considered to be your level of 'maintenance need". In addition, you might have to meet a certain threshold of dental and medical expenses before the assistance is applicable. Actually that is one reason some people purchase California dental insurance because it helps them meet medical health care threshold and become eligible for Midi -calassistance.
