Preventing Facial Injuries

Tampa Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Tampa area. Apollo Beach Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Lithia construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Florida motorists sustain injuries in detrimental 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 critical 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.

At Your Time Dental Urgent Care, we are committed to the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 813-519-0128 to talk to us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Tampa workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to vital safety procedures. With respect to Gibsonton 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 Richard Kernagis of Your Time Dental Urgent Care. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.

My office is located at 13145 Kings Lake Drive Ste 105B in Gibsonton.
