Dental Trauma Hillsboro
Hillsboro, OR

Brunette woman with toothache should go see Beaverton Oral Surgeons in Hillsboro, ORDental trauma is one of the things that no adult or child wishes to suffer through, as it often means that visible damage to the tooth has been done. Most of the time the dental injuries are minor and only cause chipped teeth, but with sufficient force, real damage, including facial trauma and maxillofacial fractures can occur.

Our dentists want to prevent this from happening to you, and our team at has dealt with several dental injuries and trauma before. Dental trauma cases can happen from sports injuries and accidents. If you suffer any of these, please contact our office right away.

Sports Injury

If you are not wearing a mouth guard or have some other protection in place to take care of your teeth, then any impact to your mouth might cause facial trauma and dislodge a tooth. This is especially common in contact sports like football, hockey, or rugby, although getting hit in the mouth and suffering from dental injuries can be a risk in almost any sport.

Most of the time, the impacts are to your head and face, and the gear you have on for that sport should project you. However, if a hockey puck or foul ball hits you right in the mouth, then you will need to make sure that all of your teeth are okay before you resume play. This is where a lot of maxillofacial fractures occur.

One of the best ways to guard against sports-based dental trauma is to make sure that you are always wearing a mouth guard. It helps to keep your teeth safe and in their sockets whenever you get hit, and it might just save you a dental visit or injury.

Accidental Impact

This one is a bit harder to plan for, but sometimes you fall to the ground mouth first and chip, bang, or smash your teeth against something. If this impact causes cracked or loose teeth, then you will need to come to see a dentist immediately. Accidental impact can be serious and cause maxillofacial fractures, on top of other dental injuries.

Stopping accidents is impossible, but you can mitigate the odds of their occurrence by being careful, and always doing your best to close your mouth if you end up tripping and falling. Additionally, you should always wear protection in your mouth, and do your best to shield your mouth from impacts with your hands. This could prevent some dental trauma from occurring.

Regardless of what happens to cause you to have dental trauma, you still will need to come to see our oral surgeons. They are specialists when it comes to taking care of your dental injuries and will make sure to walk you through what needs to happen to repair your mouth and your smile.
