Sports Related Tooth Injuries

Posted on 4/25/2022 by Brandon Cooley
Sports Related Tooth InjuriesIf you enjoy playing sports, you should know that there are some common injuries that might occur. You might get knee, elbow, or even tooth damage. This is why it is always important to get to the field with protective gadgets to help minimize the risk of injuries. Mouthguards can significantly help protect your mouth, lips, tongue, and teeth when it comes to dental injuries. But if you do not take the right preventive measures seriously, here are some of the sports-related injuries you may experience:

Tooth fracture

It is often caused by a fall on a hard surface. It may also be caused by a blow to the face, an accidental bite, or a fall from a height. The cause of the injury depends upon the force of the fall or the intensity of the blow. This may injure the tooth root or the crown. Sometimes you may require a complex treatment plan, but if it is a minor injury, it can be fixed with bonding, veneers, or dental crowns.

Tooth Displacement

It is most commonly caused by fractures or luxation of certain teeth due to trauma. A minor injury may be treated by wearing a splint. More serious injuries may require surgery. Sometimes when a tooth is displaced, it can sink into your gums or hang loose. But the good news is that you will get immediate treatment from our dentist to fix the issue.

Jawbone Fracture

The jawbone can be broken by a blow on the face or chin. It can also be broken when someone falls on the face or chin area. The face is more likely to sustain some injuries. But your dentist will take a simple x-ray to determine the extent of the injury and provide you with the best treatment options.

Lips Or Tongue Bite

When playing, you may also bite your tongue or lips accidentally, which will cause extreme pain, especially when eating food. If it stays untreated, it could lead to oral infections. Welcome to our dental clinic to get a custom-made mouthguard to protect your mouth and teeth when playing your favorite sport.
