Preventing Facial Injuries

Categories: Dental Health

Detroit Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Detroit area. Detroit Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and local 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 with general dentistry and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Szalai & Szalai DDS, 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 313-928-2323 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Detroit workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Detroit 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 Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai of Szalai & Szalai DDS. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can also develop an effective treatment plan. We also specialize in various treatments to help patients stop snoring.

Our office is located at 5329 Allen Rd in Allen Park.
