It was something that Bill had done a 100 times before – tightening the bungee cord around a tarp on his work truck. But the next thing he felt was a horrible pain in his mouth as the far side of the bungee cord had popped loose and the metal hook had come back and viciously crashed right into his front teeth and – as he would later find out – he had totally destroyed one of his front teeth and severely damaged the adjoining tooth.
In serious pain and with three severely damaged teeth he needed help quickly. And to add to the problems he was on the job when the accident happened. And, working for a large company he now had to manage through the workman’s comp process to try and get his injury fixed quickly.
Luckily for him, he got connected with Asheville Dental Care and Dr. Robert Powell who was able to help him quickly and efficiently. His injuries resulted in needing to have two broken roots removed, and two complete tooth implants and a crown placed. All of which were completed in the same appointment with his company’s workman’s comp covering the entire expense. These same procedures at a traditional dental office could have taken up to six to ten appointments and probably upwards of six months or more to complete.
So always be careful on the job – don’t underestimate the damage a bungee cord under tension can do, and if you do end up with a tooth or mouth injury make sure you contact Asheville Dental Care first to learn how their high tech dentistry can save you time, trouble and money.
