Preventing Facial Injuries

Categories: General Dentistry

Denver Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Highlands Ranch area. Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and motorists sustain injuries in 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 essential 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 cosmetic dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center, we strongly advocate the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at (720) 306-8057 for mouth guard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Highlands Ranch workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Highlands Ranch 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 Drs. Almeida & Bell of Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can also develop an effective treatment plan.  We offer oral sedation dentistry for patients anxious about dental work.

Our office is located at 8683 East Lincoln Avenue, Suite 200 in Lone Tree.
