Dental Trauma Guidelines for Pediatricians
By the Editors
The American Academy of Pediatrics has published a set of guidelines for the prevention and management of dental injuries in the primary care setting.
The guidelines, which appear in Pediatrics, emphasize the importance of establishing the cause and extent of the injury (to rule out abuse and cranial damage, and to help guide decisions on a tetanus booster). The authors also recommend having collaborative relationships with local dentists.
