ABSTRACT:Dental traumatic injuries is one of the most common dental problems faced by the masses, yet little is known about the prevalence of dental trauma at the national level. Sports, accidents, falling, fight and hitting items or people are among common etiologic factors. In both younger and older age groups, males have a higher prevalence of maxillary and mandibular incisal trauma than females. Trauma to the dentoalveolar region is common, and it can result in tooth displacement and fracture, bone crushing or fracturing, and soft tissue injuries such as contusions, abrasions, and lacerations. Traumatic dental injuries are medical emergencies that must be treated as soon as possible to relieve pain and restore function and aesthetics. Unmet treatment demands and insufficient emergency management of TDIs have recently surfaced in dental literature, revealing that some TDIs come late for treatment, potentially creating complications in treatment.
