Preventing Facial Injuries

St Charles IL, You May Need Endodontics After Sports Trauma Facial injuries occur all too often in the St Charles IL area. Elgin Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Bartlett IL construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Illinois 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, speak and need of expensive dental treatment, such as dental implants. 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 general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At David A. Rice, D.D.S., 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 847-741-2353 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the St Charles IL workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Elgin 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 your dentist at David A. Rice, D.D.S.
