Facial injuries occur all too often in the Sherman Oaks area. Van Nuys little leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Sherman Oaks construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and California motorists sustain injuries in harmful collisions every single day. 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 critical 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 Sherman Oaks Dental, we are devoted to the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 818-781-3411 to speak with us about mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.
Likewise, the Sherman Oaks workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to vital safety procedures. With respect to Sherman Oaks 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 Michael Bjornbak of Sherman Oaks Dental. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, we can develop an effective treatment plan.
My office is located at 4849 Van Nuys Blvd in Sherman Oaks.
