Though the weather may not appear spring-like, seasonal sports are in full swing in Minnesota schools. Dakota Dental, offering a different kind of dentistry, is reminding parents and athletes that dental injuries are commonly sustained by participants in organized and recreational sports activities. Most often, these injuries result in broken or lost teeth and bruised and lacerated lips, cheeks, and tongue.
At Dakota Dental Apple Valley dentistry, the family dentists understand that dental emergencies will occur even with the best prevention efforts. When dental emergency services are required, contact Dakota Dental quickly. From dental bridges to crowns on teeth to dental implants, Dakota Dental offers a complete line of dental emergency services and dentistry for children and adults.
One of the primary methods for protecting teeth against dental emergencies is to wear properly fitting protective gear, including mouth guards, when participating in spring sports such as baseball/softball, golf, lacrosse, tennis, track, and volleyball. Apple Valley dentists Shelley Wakefield and Bennett Isabella are available by appointment to provide information about the different types of mouth protectors as well as provide custom-fitted mouth guards.
Should a dental emergency occur, it is important to be prepared and to take prompt action.
