Management of dental trauma remains a significant clinical challenge affecting health-care providers and patients alike. Falls, accidents and sport-related injuries are the most frequent causes of dental trauma with an estimated prevalence of 30%. Patients can present with a wide variety of injuries ranging from crown or root fractures, to injuries to the supporting periodontal structure, including luxations and avulsions. Treatment is often complex, time consuming, expensive and requires multidisciplinary approaches such as endodontic and periodontal treatments, surgery, orthodontic movements as well as esthetic coronal restoration. Root resorption and ankylosis are the most common sequelae causing a major clinical challenge due to the high risk of infraposition and undevelopment of the alveolar bone. New approaches for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of traumatized teeth, including decoronation and pulp regeneration will be thoroughly discussed and illustrated using advanced 3D technology for diagnosis and treatment planning.

As the result of attending this course, participant will be able to:

  • Classify dental traumatic injuries.
  • Implement the most recent, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities for crown and root fractures, luxations and avulsions.
  • Discuss dentoalveolar traumatic injuries and their complications.
  • Recognize effective strategies for the preservation and augmentation of the alveolar ridge for final prosthetic rehabilitation.
  • Describe the concept of pulp revascularization for the treatment of immature teeth with necrotic pulps.
