Management of traumatic dental injuries in children is distressing for both the child and the parents. It can also be challenging for the dental team. Correct treatment and follow-up are important in order to give the child the best possible short-term and long-term care.
The risk of long-term complications such as pulp necrosis, infection related resorption or ankylosis related resorption may – if left untreated – affect the formation of the permanent teeth.
