Salt Lake City Sports Related Oral Injuries

Top Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City", 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. Pablo Bautista and his staff were great! He and all his team were very caring and personable. I am by nature an apprehensive person and I knew I had to complete multiple sessions in order to have all my dental treatment done. Well, from the first visit until the last one everyone was very professional and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Bautista truly cared about what I had to say. He worked with me to discuss the best way to complete my treatment. He is knowledgeable, and has high expertise in the dental field. In addition he works with high end dental technology. Thank you Dr. Bautista, Areli, Jonni, Alana, and all the Abundant Dental Care team, you are amazing! Thank you for all the work you do. You are giving smiles and confidence back to many people, including me. -Maria G.

Highly Recommended. I recently had a major tooth removal and replaced with an implant.. and simultaneously had a jagged tooth capped and fitted with vaneers (4 front teeth). Dr Vincent is wonderfully gentle (I conveyed I was scared of Dentists and had not had good experiences before), professional and experienced. I had very little pain in the after care of the major tooth removal and the implant took nicely with minimal swelling and no infection. Great Job! And the front Vaneers came out so perfectly my own family couldn’t tell the difference. again, Great Job! I am so thankful for the gentleness with which Dr Vincent and his team took care of me. I am also thankful for Alex, the financial expert who kept me informed every step of the way. I was able to cover the whole cost which really felt good. Thank you Abundant Dental! You guys Rock!
