The MAXILLOS team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons are uniquely qualified to
manage and treat facial trauma. They deliver emergency care, acute treatment,
and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation – providing both physical and
emotional support. They also understand how the treatment will influence the
patient’s long-term function and appearance.
On staff at Tijuana hospitals, the MAXILLOS team delivers emergency- room
coverage for facial injuries including the following conditions: Facial and
intraoral lacerations, teeth that have been knocked out, fractured facial bones
(cheek, nose, or eye socket), and fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw)
The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth.
These sinuses are empty, air-filled spaces. Some of the roots of the natural
upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are
removed there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus
and the mouth.
A sinus lift is one of the most common bone grafting procedures for patients
with bone loss in the upper jaw. The procedure seeks to grow bone in the floor
of the maxillary sinus above the bony ridge of the gum line that anchors the
teeth in the upper jaw. This enables dental implants to be placed and secured in
the new bone growth.
Using injectable substances, expression-related wrinkles such as frown lines
and ‘crow’s feet’ can be effectively treated and smoothed. In addition,
hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to restore lost volume and aid the skin in
maintaining its elasticity and resilience.
At Maxillos, B.T. is the only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the
appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s
feet, and forehead wrinkles in adults. This partially paralyzes the muscles
responsible for these lines so the wrinkles cannot be continuously reinforced by
underlying muscular contraction. With time, the wrinkles fade and you obtain a
more youthful appearance.
Where B.T. relaxes the muscle, fillers actually stimulate new collagen
production and completely rejuvenate the look and feel of your skin. That’s why
hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have become the go-to treatment to eliminate deep
wrinkles and plump areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging.
We exclusively inject FDA approved, Hyaluronic Acid-based, cosmetic dermal
fillers at Maxillos, because this type of filler is among the safest and the
results are immediate.
