Preventing Facial Injuries

Family Dentistry Sparks NV Facial injuries occur all too often in the Sparks NV 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 general dentistry professionals and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At The Reno Dentist, 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 775-323-0700 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Sparks NV workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Sparks NV 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 cosmetic dental consultation with Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, I can also develop an effective restorative dentistry treatment plan.

My office is located at 855 W Seventh St Ste 200 in Reno.
