Facial and Dental Injuries

Facial and dental injuries can happen at any age, but are more common in physically active individuals and in the elderly. Urgent care should be sought for these injuries, as some dental injuries have treatments which are time sensitive, and facial soft and hard tissue injuries can have systemtic health consequences.

Be sure to wear facial protective gear and protective mouth pieces when engaging in activities which could result in injury. If an injury does occur, don’t delay seeking treatment.
