This initiative was born from encounters with many children who present as urgent cases as a result of sports injuries or games. These injuries often result in fractures or avulsion of the teeth, other times they are undervalued, but they cause adverse long-term outcomes.
In these situations, a timely surgery, practiced with correct methods, can facilitate the complete recovery of the compromised element, without having to operate with more complex therapies. We note, however, that in most cases, excessive time between trauma and a visit to the dentist, along with inappropriate behavior, worsens the prognosis in permanent manner.
For this reason, we wish to INFORM parents and educators about the importance of proper behavior when confronted with a dental trauma.
