A tooth that has been knocked out, broken, or chipped can inflict pain and panic. No matter how big or small the injury is, it’s imperative to seek treatment immediately to prevent further damage from developing.
Tooth injuries can happen as a result of eating something hard, or they can be caused by impact to the face. In addition, tooth and mouth injuries commonly occur from contact sports.
If you’re involved in contact sports, it’s essential to wear a fitted mouthguard at all times. Mouthguards can go a long way in avoiding dental injuries from happening. If you or your child needs a custom-fitted mouthguard, ask us about it at your next appointment.
It’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible if you experience a dental emergency, big or small. Having your mouth evaluated by a dentist will help stop the progression of further damage or injury to the mouth. In addition, an evaluation is crucial to ensure the jaw and surrounding teeth are in good condition.
