Dr. Barefoot is an expert in treating and repairing facial trauma, including fractures of the upper and lower jaws and the orbits surrounding the eyes along with facial lacerations. His knowledge of how the jaw comes together also known as dental occlusion is critical when repairing complex facial fractures.
Trauma does not only result from major events like combat or automobile accidents. Childhood injuries caused by skateboards, sports or bicycle accidents frequently involve dental or facial trauma. Children frequently sustain damage to teeth or supporting structures from falls. The use of safe and effective sedation allows many traumatic injuries to be effectively treated in Dr. Barefoot’s office, avoiding costly emergency room visits.
