Traumatic Dental Injuries: Considerations and Complications This is a Core CE seminar

April 27, 2019
8:00 am โ€“ 11:00 am
  • Ralan Wong, D.D.S., MS

Most dental injuries in young children occur either as accidents at school or home. Many times maintenance of these teeth is particularly important due to the young permanent tooth in question. Traumatic injuries usually result in damage not only to the dental, but also the periradicular structures. Recent advances in the understanding of healing and its relation to dental trauma especially tooth and bone have developed new considerations to restore the most severely damaged dentition. It is important to understand the management and consequences of the injuries as they are quite complex. This course will deal with the basic principles, understanding of endodontic considerations, and the relation of ultimate outcomes such as pathologic root resorption of the dental alveolar structures and its relation to dental trauma.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the basic concepts of wound healing.
2) Understand how to classify and treat different types of traumatic dental injuries.
3) Know when to treat traumatic injuries with endodontic therapy.
4) Understand the prognosis of different injuries and follow up treatment.
