What To Do if A Golf Ball Hits You in The Teeth

You’ve probably heard of a story before or had a friend who has been hit in the head while playing a friendly game of golf. Or worse they were hit in the mouth and lost a tooth or two. This happens more than you would think on the golf course and really you only have a couple of options. If you are struck in the mouth and one of your teeth is chipped or knocked out it’s best to take care of the problem sooner rather than later. If you have a tooth knocked out and don’t address it the problem can get worse and you can even have bone loss in that portion of your jaw because there is no tooth there to anchor and cause the bone to sustain itself.  Have it looked at right away by a qualified dentist (a Periodontist or Endodontist dentist) and you can get back on the course before you know it, get past the laughing and ridicule of your buddies, and put that silly and unfortunately event behind you!
