Facial injuries occur all too often in the Knoxville area. Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, 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 a 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 cosmetic dentist, as well as oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
At Marty W. Lindahl, DDS, 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 (865) 983-4444 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.
Likewise, the Knoxville workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Knoxville 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 emergency dental care with Dr. Marty Lindahl of Marty W. Lindahl, DDS. If you are having general dentistry problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, I can also develop an effective treatment plan.
My office is located at 2625 Old Niles Ferry Rd, Maryville TN.
