Traumatic dental injuries are very common in children and adolescents. The timely and appropriate management of these injuries significantly impacts the long term prognosis. Evidence-based guidelines developed by the International Association of Dental Traumatology and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Association of Endodontists will be reviewed to assist dentists in the appropriate care of traumatic dental injuries. Complications related to lack of timely care or lack of appropriate follow-up will be discussed along with treatment options to address these complications. The importance of detailed documentation of dental injuries will be discussed and demonstrated using a trauma form developed by the AAPD. Finally, suggestions for prevention of traumatic dental injuries will be discussed.
