Always See an Oral Surgeon After an Auto Accident

Posted on 2/20/2020 by Dr. Michael Allard
Always See an Oral Surgeon After an Auto AccidentAccidents happen and when they do, it can leave us reeling in shock. After the trauma of a wreck, most people are more concerned about the physical aspects of the accident, such as damage caused to their necks and bodies.

For some, the thought of injuring their mouths is a moot point when it comes to physical assessment. It can be critical to the evaluation, however, to make sure your mouth is inspected thoroughly after an accident.

Why You Should See Us After A Wreck

An oral surgeon can help determine the extent of damage done to your mouth after an accident. There are two primary types of impact that could be done to your teeth, which are direct and indirect contact. Direct damage means you were hit in the face during the accident.

Indirect is something that could force your mouth to jar or close during impact. Depending on how fast you were travelling at the time of the wreck could determine how much help you may need after. If there was something in your mouth at the time of the accident, such as ice or gum, it is still important to seek help.

Seeking Aid After An Accident

We can help assess the situation and decide what treatment is necessary following an accident. If you have a fracture or broken tooth, we can help to restore it. If a tooth is knocked out of your mouth, we can determine if there was damage done to the jaw. If you notice a tooth is loose, we can help secure it back in the socket. It is absolutely important to have your mouth inspected immediately following an accident to aid in your recovery.

Although you may not feel much concern about your oral health following an accident, it is still a good idea to follow up with an appointment. If you are worried about the state of your teeth, please contact our office for a dental follow up.
