Preventing Facial Injuries in Work and Athletics

Las Vegas Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often. Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls, and motorists sustain injuries in harmful collisions every day. Accidents at home can also result in serious injury to the face.

Serious facial injuries can affect the victim’s ability to eat, breathe, and speak. Because of the vital physical processes at risk, a person who has suffered a facial injury should receive medical care as soon as possible. Injuries to the mouth are treated by general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Providence Dental, we are passionate about the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 702-852-2244 to talk to us about mouth guard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to critical safety procedures. With respect to motor vehicle injuries, the following instructions bear repetition: Wear your seat belt and don’t send or read text messages while driving!

If you have suffered a recent injury to your face, mouth, or jaw, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us. If you are having dental problems due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.
