Facial injuries occur all too often in our immediate area. Local Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and motorists sustain injuries in harmful collisions every single day. Accidents at home can also result in serious injury to the face. We at Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ are all too familiar with these injuries.

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 general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

We are committed to the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity.

Likewise, the workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to essential safety procedures. With respect to 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 us at Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan. We serve patients from Gilbert, Superior, Gold Canyon, Mesa, and Apache Junction and also offer cosmetic dentistry and implantsCall us to communicate with us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.
