Facial injuries occur all too often in the Salt Lake City area. Sandy Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Draper construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Utah motorists sustain injuries in dangerous collisions every single 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 Salt Lake Dental Care, we are enthusiastic about the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 801-938-8855 to meet with us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.
Likewise, the Salt Lake City workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to critical safety procedures. With respect to Murray motor vehicle injuries, the following instructions bear repetition: Wear your seatbelt and don’t send or read text messages while driving!
If you have suffered a recent injury to your face, mouth or jaw, schedule a dental consultation with Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.
My office is located at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 in Murray.
