Anticipated Questions About Dental Trauma Cases


Tooth injuries constitute an important part of clinical odontology. Dental traumas occurring are usually studied in young age groups than adult older patients in different communities.
The time after the trauma is an important factor that affects the prognosis of dental hard and soft tissue injuries. When the time between trauma and referral to a dental clinic is delayed, the teeth are less likely to remain vital. In such cases, severity of the late complications such as pulp necrosis, periapical lesions, root resorption, pulp canal obliteration and loss of marginal alveolar bone usually become aggravated. These complications are seen more often in periodontally injured teeth in young patients. In this presentation, replies to the anticipated questions about dental trauma cases will be provided by the long term clinical and radiographic prognoses of vital pulp therapies and nonsurgical/ surgical endodontic treatment in traumatized permanent teeth.
