Management of Dental Trauma in the Pediatric Patient

Lina M. Cardenas, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.

Dental trauma is part of the General and Pediatric Dentistry practice. Current research has led to a better understanding of the healing mechanisms that translate into better clinical protocols for the management of trauma. The course will start with an introduction to trauma and the evaluation of the patient with trauma. Then, a review of the classification, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic lesions is presented. Finally, several clinical cases will be presented and discussed.

A review of the current guidelines (from the American Academy of Endodontics, the International Association of Dental Traumatology and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) for the management of dental trauma in the primary and permanent dentition will be presented. Easy-to-use decision analysis and protocols for the emergency treatment as well as follow-up and referral needs will also be discussed.
