Preventing Facial Injuries

Family Dentistry St. Michael MN Facial injuries occur all too often in the St. Michael MN area. Local Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, St. Michael MN construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and area 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 your family dentist and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Arbor Lakes Dental, 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 (763)494-4443 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the St. Michael MN workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to 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. Jamie Sledd of Arbor Lakes Dental. 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 12000 Elm Creek Blvd, Ste 230, Maple Grove, MN.
