Dr Dental – Common Dental Injury Management in Athletes

05/06/21

According to re research: Orofacial and dental trauma continues to be a commonly encountered issue for the sports medicine team. All sports have some risk for dental injury, but “contact sports” presumably incur more risk. Immediate evaluation and proper management of the most common injuries to dentition can result in saving or restoration of tooth structure. Despite the growing body of evidence, mouth guard use and dental protection have not paralleled the increase in sports participation.

Common dental injuries in sports include tooth (crown) fractures; tooth intrusion, extrusion, and avulsion; and temporomandibular joint dislocation. Mouth guards help prevent most injuries and do not significantly affect ventilation or speech if fitted properly.

Dr Dental – Dental Schools Quality Dental Care

04/17/21

Beside dental schools charging less for dnetal care they usually treat their patients with the latest technologies available. The dentistry field is constantly changing, so this type of specialized school will want to train its students with current technology. In some cases, you as the patient may get more advanced results than at an older, established dentist office.

Dentistry students are usually graded by the quality of their work, rather than by the speed in which they work. Therefore, the dentistry students may be more focused on getting your work done correctly than an established dentist would, whose priority may be to get you in and out the office as fast as possible.

Dr Dental – How Dental Schools Can Save You Money.

04/12/21

For people who do not have dental insurance and are low income, dental schools are a good way to receive more affordable dental care. There are people that either do not receive dental benefits though work or they feel they can not afford dental care insurance.  These people will also tend to avoid going to the dentist even when necessary due to cost. 

Dental schools provide a good way to receive dental care at a more affordable cost. Most dental schools often offer cheaper dental care services, then a local general dentist.  Dental schools will normally work with you to determine the cost of dental care, by evaluating patients free of charge and by working to create a treatment plan that is priced within your means. Though every school is different, most schools have walk-in, emergency care and appointment services.
