Emergency dentistry through sports ‘can be avoided’

Fri

Mouth guards have been advised to help people avoid tooth injuries while playing sports.

People who take part in sports have been advised that fractured teeth and other oral health problems can be avoided.

The Hattiesburg American reported that Dr John Roberson, a board-certified oral surgeon who practices oral and maxillofacial surgery in Hattiesburg, has claimed wearing a mouth guard is the best way to avoid broken and lost teeth.

He argued that: “Mouth guards should be worn at all times during competition; in practice as well as in games.”

Elsewhere, individuals were recently advised that they could boost their oral health by ensuring they keep themselves well hydrated – something that those who take part in physical exercise will no doubt be aware of.

The Record reported that drinking lots of water not only helps people avoid dry mouth, but it also acts to wash away debris from food.

Patients should ‘seek help for fractured teeth’

Anyone with broken teeth should organise a trip to see the dentist.

Individuals who have chipped, broken or fractured teeth have been urged to contact a dental professional to get these problems fixed.

According to the Hattiesburg American, a dentist’s evaluation of broken teeth is critical, even if a person does suffer from pain or bleeding.

The publication stated that sharp teeth can damage the lips and cheeks, as well having the possibility of harbouring excessive amounts of bacteria that could lead to tooth decay in the future.

As a result, people should seek advice as soon as a problem occurs, as failing to seek treatment could be extremely detrimental in the long term and could adversely impact on their overall – not just oral – health.

Elsewhere, the Tennessean recently reported more dentists are seeing patients who have damaged their oral health through excessive teeth grinding.

Research from the Chicago Dental Society showed that workplace stresses and financial worries are leading to more people grinding their teeth.
