Preventing Facial Injuries

Mt. Vernon Sports Dentistry Facial injuries occur all too often in the Alexandria area. Springfield Little Leaguers get hit by inside pitches, Annandale construction workers suffer falls and other accidents at the worksite, and Virginia motorists sustain injuries in 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 essential 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 and cosmetic dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, we strongly advocate the use of protective equipment for every type of sport, whether it is a team sport or individual activity. Call us at 703-360-5881 for mouthguard recommendations regarding your (or your child’s) specific sport.

Likewise, the Alexandria workplace injury rate can be reduced with increased use of appropriate protective equipment and adherence to safety procedures. With respect to Alexandria 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 cosmetic dental consultation with James D. Geren of Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry. If you are having dental problems (functional or aesthetic) due to an untreated past injury, I can also develop an effective treatment plan.  We offer sedation dentistry for anxious patients.

My office is located at 8101 Hinson Farm Rd Ste 114 in Alexandria.

Dr. James Geren, DDS.
