Cocktails & Conversation - Managing Traumatic Injuries in the Young Permanent Dentition Sponsored by: Diversity & Inclusion Committee

About this event

Sara Ehsani, DDS

The vast majority of traumatic dental injuries occur in children and teenagers where loss of a tooth has lifetime consequences. Maxillary central incisors are most commonly injured, and protruding incisors are at greatest risk. Crown fractures and luxations of these teeth are the most commonly occurring of all dental injuries.

Injured children and their parents are often anxious and this can complicate the provision of prompt, appropriate care. Traumatic dental injuries also have significant adverse functional, esthetic, and psychological effects on children. Treatments for these younger age groups may be different than in adults, mainly due to immature teeth and pubertal facial growth. Proper diagnosis, treatment planning, and follow up appointments are important for achieving a favorable outcome.

The purpose of this presentation is to improve management of injured teeth and minimize complications resulting from trauma. The clinician will be able to assess the injury, prioritize treating those problems that require immediate attention, and minimize the child’s fear and anxiety.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn to assess the injury, prioritize treating those problems that require immediate attention, and minimize the child’s fear and anxiety
  • Review the types of traumatic dental injuries to young permanent teeth
  • Evaluate appropriate treatment options for different traumatic dental injuries
