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.

I have never had such a pleasant experience at a dentist in my 54 years. They explain everything and are very attentive to my question and concerns. The staff is incredibly friendly and you can tell it is genuine. Highly recommend!!

I had a bad experience with another dentist and was afraid to go in for the last few years. I found abundant dental and Dr Hilton and staff. He is the kindest, funniest and most personable dentist I've ever had and made me feel  comfortable while getting my work done. I'm not feeling afraid of dental work anymore and am so pleased with my results and the interactions I've had with everyone here. I would recommend them to anyone who needs work or cleanings done.

I cracked a tooth last night. Dr. Hilton called me back - Saturday night! - and got me in today (Sunday). The whole team was professional and so nice. I was really in pain and upset and they took great care of me!

I got my wisdom tooth pulled I was so nervous but he did it so fast and smooth I was impressed and then he even text me that night to see how I was feeling!!
