Preventing Facial Injuries

Vista Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Vista area. San Luis Rey Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Camp Pendleton construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and California 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 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 Oceanside Dental Excellence, 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 760-439-3400 to communicate with us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Vista workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to important safety procedures. With respect to Oceanside 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 Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth of Oceanside Dental Excellence. 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 3762 Mission Ave Ste 104 in Oceanside.
