Facial injuries occur all too often in the Gladewater area. Hallsville Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Kilgore construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Texas motorists sustain injuries in harmful collisions every single day. Vaca and Kirby Dental know how 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 Vaca and Kirby Dental, we are passionate about the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 903-663-0861 to speak with us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.
Likewise, the Gladewater workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to vital safety procedures. Concerning Longview 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 Chris Kirby of Vaca & Kirby Dental. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.
