Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit
The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments with an emergency dentist San Juan Capistrano CA. Most adults don’t have the time to play for an organized league, even a casual one. This means that even a backyard game of basketball can lead to a tooth being damaged or knocked out. The same holds true for kids playing sports throughout the 92675 area. There are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard but when an emergency strikes call us as soon as possible.
Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Rancho Mission Viejo Dental get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident, just to make sure that they haven’t sustained any physical injuries. Afterwards, patients in the San Juan Capistrano CA area should call for a dentist appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.
