From hockey to surfing to swimming and running, Dr. Leif E. Löberg and his staff love staying active in the great outdoors, and they recognize many clients also take advantage of all the perks that come with living in sunny Laguna Hills.
We understand that accidents can happen to even the most athletic and graceful. Colgate reminds us of the story of a boy who snagged his tooth on a basketball net while making a slam-dunk. What are the odds of that? Apparently, the odds of this happening are greater than you might think, as the company reported more than 40 dentists wrote in with similar stories about mishaps on the court.
As many as 39 percent of dental injuries are sports-related. We recognize these types of injuries don’t happen only during our regular 8 to 5 office hours. In fact, when most may be playing basketball or engaging in activities isn’t during normal work hours. If you have a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call the Löberg office as you normally would at 949.586.1930. A staff member will be in touch with you ASAP.
In the case of a knocked-out tooth, the longer you go with the tooth out of its socket, the less chance Dr. Löberg and his team will be able to reattach and successfully save the tooth. Likewise, you may have an emergency that is not caused by a sports or other types of accidents.
You may think that trauma such as an abscessed tooth is not an emergency. It’s better to call us right away than to continue to suffer with the pain. This type of infection can spread to other parts of the body and pose serious health risks.
Bear in mind, too, that if you leave your emergency dental care in Laguna Hills to the emergency room, you are not getting the specialized expertise of the Löberg Professional Dental Corporation, nor are you getting treatment from professionals who know you and your mouth. As if you didn’t already have enough to reasons to call our staff, you can also avoid the sticker shock that comes with an ER visit. We can also recommend mouth guards and other ways to minimize the risks of injuries as part of your ongoing, regular examinations.
