Preventing Injuries to the Face

Preventing Injuries to the FaceFacial injuries are a common cause of dental trauma. Sports injuries, car accidents, falls, workplace injuries and other accidents can lead to broken teeth, knocked out teeth and other serious facial injuries that can affect your ability to eat, speak or even breathe. Because the consequences can be severe, if you have suffered a facial injury, it is essential that you seek treatment as soon as possible.

Our dentist may work together with a maxillofacial surgeon to provide you with restorative and cosmetic dental treatments in order to ensure proper healing. If you are suffering from pain, dental problems or functional issues due to past untreated or improperly treated facial injuries, we can help create an effective treatment plan to address your concerns. Our dentist may recommend using dental crowns, dental veneers or dental implants to restore function and aesthetics to your smile.

If you regularly participate in athletics, taking preventative measures can help reduce your risk of facial injury. Custom-fit mouth guards can be designed for specific sports. Certain occupations carry with them an increased risk of facial injuries as well. Follow recommended safety protocols, and wear all necessary protective equipment to reduce your own risk. If you drive or ride in a vehicle, you can reduce your risk of facial and other injuries by following the rules of the road, wearing your seat belt and not texting while driving.
