Ins and Outs of Dental Trauma - How Prepared Are We?

Friday, March 24, 2023




Dental trauma is a significant public health problem, from preschoolers to adolescents. Diagnosis and treatment are the most important factors for improving the outcome in every case. Suggested guidelines and established protocols help patients keep their teeth longer after trauma. These procedures will help preserve the bone structures that guide proper facial growth in children and adolescents. This course will describe the prevalence, diagnosis and treatment options for dental trauma in this population. 


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the Epidemiology of Dental Trauma.
  • Describe the different types of Dental Trauma.
  • Identify  treatment options, outcomes and sequela as a result of Dental Trauma.
  • Apply the acquired knowledge on a simulation model.
