Sultan can offer you in order to get your life back on track. Read on to learn more.

Dental Issues
Whether you received dental injury to your mouth by something such as your airbag, the impact from the crash, or being hit by a large object during the accident, you may be experiencing either misaligned or missing teeth. Depending on which thing you are suffering from, Dr. Leslie H. Sultan has options for you.

  • Misaligned: if your teeth were moved around during the accident to do extreme impact, then Dr. Leslie H. Sultan may recommend some sort of orthodontic procedure in order to straighten your teeth and get them back into an aligned position.
  • Missing Teeth: If one or several of your teeth were completely knocked out during your car accident, Dr. Leslie H. Sultan will likely recommend that you get a treatment like dental implants in order to restore the functionality of your teeth and to restore your smile as well.

Facial Obstructions
If the soft or hard tissues in your face were injured during a car accident, then Dr. Leslie H. Sultan will take a 3D image of your entire jaw in order to map out the best surgical options in order to help your face heal properly. By making several small incisions either in the mouth, on the eyelid, or hairline, Dr. Leslie H. Sultan will be able to perform reconstructive surgery.

Don’t let a car accident permanently affect your face or mouth. With the help of Dr. Leslie H. Sultan you can get back to normal in no time. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!
