If you have ever suffered any kind of injury to your mouth or teeth you will understand how painful and upsetting it can be to go through. Most of us know what it’s like to have a filling or to bite our tongue by accident. Imagine then the pain caused by mouth and dental injuries if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer from them.
Injuries like these can occur for all manner of reasons. For example you might find you are injured because you are at work and you don’t have the right safety equipment to prevent such an injury from happening. On the other hand, perhaps you are working with machinery that hasn’t got the appropriate safety guards on it. This might cause something to fly off and hit you simply because there is no guard in place.
Mouth and dental injuries might also be caused in other accidents
Road accidents can lead to facial injuries, some of which might affect the mouth and teeth. You may lose one or more teeth if you receive a heavy blow to the face that someone else was responsible for. You may be knocked off your bike for example. While your helmet will protect your head it won’t protect your mouth.
You can see then that it is possible for you to suffer injuries to your mouth and teeth that may take some time to heal. This will cause you problems with eating and drinking, and you might suffer from scarring as well.
