CE: 1.0 

Description: The management of dental trauma remains a significant clinical challenge affecting healthcare providers and patients alike. Falls, accidents and sport-related injuries are the most frequent causes of dental trauma. 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 complex, time-consuming, expensive and requires a multidisciplinary approach. This presentation will discuss the current AAE guidelines, with emphasis on current evidence-based literature supporting therapeutic modifications, as well as new philosophies to be considered for future guidelines. 

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

  • Demonstrate familiarity with dento-alveolar traumatic injuries and their complications.
  • Implement the most recent, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities.
  • Explain new concepts under research and development and its implications on upcoming guidelines.
