Diagnosis and Treatment of Oral Trauma

A routinely followed format for the post trauma examination provides a more organized approach along with the assurance of a thorough evaluation. Other areas of injury to the head or oral cavity may be missed if we concentrate only on the most obvious injury or chief complaint. This lecture instructs participants in examination, diagnosis and the treatment of oral trauma in the pediatric patient. Timing and inclusions for follow-up examination, radiographic techniques and antibiotic recommendations are included. Many accidents lead to legal intervention, and findings that appear to be irrelevant or minor may ultimately be of significance. The thoroughness and organization of your dental records will not only ensure excellence in treatment, but may be significant for medicolegal support.

Objectives:
  • Obtain information and documentation for accurate and complete dental records.
  • Perform emergency treatment with an organized approach for assurance of timely and appropriate intervention.
  • Provide appropriate follow-up.
  • Understand the need for collaboration with other specialists along with determining the provider who will assume primary responsibility for treatment continuity and follow-up.
  • Learn current guidelines and review the dental literature.
