ORTHODONTIC AND INTERDISCIPLINARY TREATMENT OF DENTAL TRAUMAS
Traumatic dental injuries are most common among children and adolescents, but can also occur in adults. The prevalence varies between countries, but it seems to be more prevalent in males than females. Incisors are the most often affected teeth in both jaws. These traumas can disturb a perfectly normal occlusion, or complicate an already present malocclusion. Sometimes a simple non-orthodontic solution is the best treatment option. However, the majority of these cases require orthodontic treatment alone, or in combination with other disciplines. The lecture will give an overview of the possible treatment solutions for dental injuries pertaining to the maxillary incisors.
