Abstract

Dental trauma is, unfortunately, not uncommon in the Israeli population. High risk populations include children, sport participants, military personnel and patients with oral (tongue) and/or lip piercing. In 2007, the International Association of Dental Trauma (IADT) updated the guidelines for the management of traumatic dental injuries. This paper is aimed to discuss and present the new guidelines for the management of traumatic dental injuries and to offer some highlights to the Israeli dental population. Good prognosis of injured teeth largely depends on prompt and appropriate management. Thus, it is important for healthcare-givers, especially dental practitioners, to maintain an adequate level of updated knowledge.
