Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are one of the only professionals with enough advanced training in both surgery and anesthesia techniques to enable most patients to be surgically treated in the office. However when more extensive injuries occur, the patient is cared for the hospital operating room. Doctors Crawford and McBee’s hospital credentials allow them to operate in hospitals throughout Utah County.
During the course of facial reconstructive surgery, any complex facial fractures and lacerations are scrupulously repaired and reconstructed. Broken facial bones are commonly set with miniature titanium plates and screws to speed up the healing process. Because they are trained and highly experienced in facial reconstructive plastic surgery, Doctors Crawford and McBee at Utah Oral Surgeons provide healthy and cosmetically pleasing results for patients who have had the misfortune to experience facial and cranial injuries due to trauma.
In a life-threatening emergency always call 9-1-1. When facial reconstructive surgery is needed please contact Utah Oral Surgeons at either our Provo, Pleasant Grove / American Fork or Price office. Our staff will ensure you or your loved one are seen and treated quickly.
