Traumatic dental injuries never seem to happen at a convenient time, do they? Since the majority of after hours emergency calls involve some sort of traumatic event we thought we would compile a list of the most common dental injuries and how they are to be treated. In the primary/baby teeth peak incidences of trauma are seen around the age of 2-3 years (when motor coordination is developing and children start moving around on their own). By the age of […]
