Utah Sports Related Oral Injuries

Top Utah emergency dentist near me to treat 24/7 sports related oral injuries

Oral-facial damage is extremely common in contact sports, particularly hockey, basketball, football and martial arts. The most common dental injuries that occur during contact sport play are:

  • Avulsed (knocked out) tooth
  • Tooth fracture
  • Soft tissue lacerations
  • Tooth subluxation (loose tooth)

Time is of the essence in any of the above injuries. Emergency dental care is imperative to a full recovery, particularly so in the case of tooth avulsion. If you ever find yourself searching for an “emergency dentist near me in Utah", Abundant Dental is here to help.

The treatments for sports related injury vary. For subluxed teeth, saving the tooth is more likely if the patient is able to get to the dentist within 30 minutes of the accident. Until then, the tooth should be kept inside the patient's cheek or submerged in a glass of skim milk. It is important that the patient be checked for any other life threatening injuries, such as spinal cord injury, first.

Don't let fear of oral damage keep you from letting your child enjoy high school or college sports. The experts of Abundant Dental are available 24/7 in the case of an emergency, giving you peace of mind. Don't hesitate to contact us during an emergency, no matter the day or hour.

Dr. Simmonds professionally cared for my younger, adult son when we needed emergency care out of their normal service hours. We entered with my son in excruciating pain and exited with a smiling, happy, painless son. That's about 7 months ago. It's 11.28.2020 today and my older son is having the same problem as his bro did months ago, he saw another dentist from another practice earlier before Thanksgiving, they had him rescheduled for the following Thursday after Thanksgiving, but son couldn't take the pain anymore, he said it got worse and it was giving him headaches and starting to effect and ache his right eye. We again called Abundant Dental Care, desperately in need of help and coincidentally, Dr. Simmonds was the SUPERMAN that answered and again, professionally took care of older son, with much love and lots of professional care that helped relieved son's toothache pain and he too left the clinic with a very happy face. Our hearts are full of gratitude and thanks for Dr. Simmonds and his professional love and care for the people. We love you, Dr. Simmonds! Thanks Abundant Dental Care for giving us doctors like Dr. Kirk Simmonds. ❤🤗

I went into abundant dentistry with an abscess that was swelling half my face 2 days ago. Dr Blais and his staff in sandy were amazing! Professional gentle and kind. The best part was I was given ALL my options and it was very affordable. The staff worked hard with most professionalism and quickness. The building was clean with a warm ness and brightness that I enjoyed. The gentle Dr Blais is my hero and I would recommend him to anyone because he shown me REALLY cares about people. Even followed up with me personally the next day to check on me. I will ALWAYS choose him for my family dentist forever.
