Information about dental trauma in children

Dental trauma tends to occur most often in children between the ages of eight and 10-years-old, as well as toddlers, i.e. those between two and four-years-old. Of course, trauma can happen at any age. However, these ages are most common because pre-teens like to take part in activities, such as sports, and they are not often as coordinated as their older counterparts. When it comes to toddlers, well, they like to toddle and fall down! Getting in touch with a dental clinic is the best approach if something like this happens, rather than taking your child to an emergency dentist. Most dental clinics today will offer emergency care, so all you need to do is give them a call.


It can be difficult to get distracted by the obvious injury when it comes to situations like this. However, it is important to make sure that you fully assess your child’s condition. It is always best to start with the area that looks the worse first, and then move to the next worst, and so on. A lot of dental injuries are going to be isolated. Nevertheless, it is still important to make sure that there is not any evidence of trauma that could be more significant, for example, mid-face instability or hemotympanum.
