Facial injuries occur all too often in the Salt Lake City area. Cedar Hills Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Highland construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Utah 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 vital 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 Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry, we are enthusiastic about the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 801 766 4042 to talk to us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child's) specific sport.
Likewise, the Salt Lake City workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to critical safety procedures. With respect to Lehi 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 Andrew Bateman of Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry. 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 2961 W Maple Loop Dr. in Lehi.
