Consult an Affordable Dentist today for Dental Sport injuries

by Sandy Clark Writer
The tooth is made up of 3 primary layers which are the enamel, dentin, and pulp. The hard outer surface is named as the enamel, with the dentin just located below it and covering the pulp, which contains the tooth’s neurovascular structures. The portion of the tooth that is exterior to the gum is the crown, while the root is located beneath the gum line. Thus the fracture to the crown can be the sign an injury to the enamel only, the structures of enamel-dentin or through all three layers (complicated fracture) to the pulp. Generally, involvement of the dentin produces sensitivity of temperature and pressure, while the bleeding spot provides the evidence of the exposure of the pulp layer. Direct trauma may cause injury to the supporting structures of the tooth which either leads to subluxation which means instability of the tooth without displacement or can lead to avulsion which means complete displacement of the tooth from its alveolar socket. These injuries generally cause bleeding from the gingiva. In an additional manner Trauma may also cause extrusion which means partial displacement of the tooth from the alveolar socket, or can lead to intrusion which means complete displacement of the tooth into the alveolar bone. These generally form some axial misalignment (retrusion/protrusion).

Orofacial and dental trauma is to be a recurrent issue that is commonly encountered by the sports medicine team. All sports possess some risk of dental injury, but presumably “contact sports” leads to more risk of injury. Thus the restoration of the tooth structure can be performed by the evaluation on an immediate basis and proper management of the most common injuries to the structure of the teeth. The Dental Sport injuries that are commonly encountered are tooth intrusion, extrusion and avulsion, temporomandibular joint dislocation and tooth (crown) fractures. Mouth guards assists to prevent the most of these injuries without significantly affecting the ventilation or speech. But inspite of the growing body of evidence behind the use of mouth guard, its use for the purpose of dental protection have not seen in an significant manner in sports.

One can find an Economical Dentist in the suitable dental clinic that also provides quality services of dentistry with flexible options of payment. As thedental services are priced by utilizinga sliding scale, so patients who are from the lower income background generally have to pay less for the dental services that they receive. For example offering options of financing on approved credit (FOAC) in order that the dental patients can make the payment for their dental services over time. Free dental services or providing dental care at the rates of discount are also included in this aspect.
