||A fracture confined to enamel and dentin with loss of tooth structure, but not involving the pulp.
||Visible loss of enamel and dentin. No visible sign of exposed pulp tissue.
||Not tender. If tenderness is observed evaluate the tooth for possible luxation or root fracture injury.
|Sensibility pulp test
||Usually positive. The test may be negative initially indicating transient pulpal damage. Monitor pulpal response until a definitive pulpal diagnosis can be made.
The test is important in assessing future risk of healing complications. A lack of response at the initial examination indicates an increased risk of later pulp necrosis.
||The enamel-dentin loss is visible.
||Periapical, occlusal and eccentric exposure. They are recommended in order to rule out displacement or the possible presence of a root fracture.
Radiograph of lip or cheek lacerations to search for tooth fragments or foreign material.
