Preventing Facial Injuries

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Beverly Hills Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Beverly Hills area. Hollywood Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, California construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Los Angeles 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 cosmetic dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, 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 310-277-5678 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport. Likewise, the Beverly Hills workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Beverly Hills 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 Bill Dorfman of Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, I can also develop an effective treatment plan.  Common cosmetic dental procedures to fix an injury to the face include dental implants, dental veneers, and dental crowns. My office is located at 2080 Century Park East, Suite 1601 in Los Angeles. Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS.
