TRIAGE TRAUMATIC DENTAL INJURIES:
CPR FOR PERMANENT & PRIMARY TEETH


This course explores the skills needed to provide traumatic dental care to adults as well as the immature permanent teeth that require specialized treatment from the triage dentist and the endodontist. Because traumatic injuries have been researched extensively for more than 50 years, the pathway to a good prognosis oftentimes lies in the general dentist’s hands. These dentists are called upon by the patients initially. The primary care dentists need to act quickly and skillfully because triage treatment determines the prognosis.
