In the unfortunate circumstance that you suffer a facial injury, you may be referred to Dr Chahoud for repair of your teeth, cheek bone, eye socket or upper and lower jaws. This will, in most cases, require admission into hospital for the placement of plates, screws or wires to realign the teeth and facial bones. Hospital admission is normally one to two days with up to two weeks recovery time and no contact sport for four to six weeks.
