Dental Trauma Management for Stretton and Calamvale Area
It is always great to plan for difficult situations. If you live in Southside suburbs of Brisbane like Calamvale, Stretton or Drewvale QLD 4116, and especially if you have kids, then it would be a good idea to save our number into your phone as an emergency dentist Dr. Ellie (07) 3343 4869.
Based on our historical records and clinical observations, majority of the dental trauma has been caused by:
- Playing or Falling 71%
- Hard Food 19%
- Fights 8%
- Work Injuries 2%
These incidents don’t just happen in the normal business hours, chance of a dental trauma accident in weekends can be higher than normal work days perhaps because people tend to do more sport activities in their leisure time. Majority of our patients that have been involved in a dental trauma have less than 17 years of age. One of the factors affecting this statistics can be that parents take dental trauma serious and when it happens to their children, they take immediate action to consult a dentist before it is too late. Young people also tend to run and move faster than adults increasing their risk of being involved in a dental injury.
Because children are more likely to be involved in a dental trauma, following these guidelines can help prevent injuries:
- Do not run around swimming pools and use stairs when getting out of the pool
- Teach children not to jump off a swing when the swing is in motion
- Use mouth guards and helmets when playing contact sports
