Facial injuries occur all too often in the Farmington area. Kirtland Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and motorists sustain injuries in detrimental collisions every single day. Accidents at home can also result in serious injury to the face.
Serious facial injuries can affect a person’s ability to eat, breathe, and speak, so it’s important to seek medical care immediately.
Injuries to the mouth are treated by general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
At Sundance Dental & Orthodontics, we are devoted to the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 505-985-5626 to talk to us about mouthguard 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 seatbelt and don’t send or read text messages while driving!
Have you suffered a recent injury to your face, mouth or jaw? Schedule a dental consultation with Michael Tornow of Sundance Dental & Orthodontics. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.
