This is a readily accessible, fully illustrated guide to the initial treatment of acute dental injuries. The clinician is guided through the initial examination of the traumatized patient to the design of a rational, individualized treatment plan. This approach is aimed at minimizing the risk of long-term complications and, thereby, alleviating the uncertainty of the future of the the traumatized dentition both for the patient, dentist and for other concerned individuals. The material is drawn from clinical investigations, statistical analysis of 20,000 records of patients treated for acute dental injuries over 25 years, and results from 100 experimental studies.
