Traumatic injuries of the primary and permanent dentition are common in children but also in adult patients. A coherent history, clinical and radiographic examination of soft and hard tissues is essential to successfully diagnose and manage orofacial traumatic injuries. Dental trauma often requires emergent care and dental professionals should be adequately educated to treat them appropriately. The purpose of this course is to review the current guidelines for diagnosis, management and prognosis of dental traumatic injuries on permanent teeth and discuss the different treatment options to manage complications related to dental injuries.
It will include a hands-on demonstration on the application of a dental splint.
At the conclusion of this course the participant should be able to:
- Diagnose and differentiate dental traumatic injuries.
- Know how to adequately manage a dental trauma case.
- Apply a splint for dental traumatic injuries.
