Contemporary Management of Traumatic Dental Injuries, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # L0715  

Original Release Date: November 2, 2012 

Review Date: October 22, 2015
Expiration Date: October 21, 2018

Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) are commonly encountered in dental practice. In fact, 25% of school-aged children and 33% of adults have experienced TDI to their permanent dentition. These injuries can result in pain, psychological problems, and significant economic implications. 

The entire dental staff should understand basic concepts regarding TDI management in order to triage, treat, and provide appropriate follow-up care for these injuries. Providing a structured presentation of the patient’s clinical appearance and identifying issues that require immediate treatment can not only help the dentist but also significantly improve the treatment outcomes.  In order to properly treat patients who have experienced TDI, it is imperative that the dentist be compassionate, be able to control pain, help heal wounds rather than fix teeth, and be available to these patients by being on call during non-office hours. Approaching an emergent situation confidently can help the patient and/or parent feel at ease and thus allow for optimal treatment. 

The treating dentist must be willing to be a member of a team, which may include specialists such as endodontists, prosthodontists, periodontists, orthodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These specialists are often needed for consultation regarding treatment of the acute injury and may also be needed to provide specific services and/or comprehensive long-term care.  

Topics presented in this course include the epidemiology, prevention, general treatment considerations, and protocols for management of the full array of TDI. The sequelae of injuries to primary and permanent teeth are also addressed. This basic-level course is appropriate for dentists and for dental auxiliaries with some prior exposure to TDI.

Item # L0702  

Release Date: May 21, 2012

Pediatric patients with complex medical and developmental conditions are a unique and growing population. Because these children are especially vulnerable to the oral effects of systemic diseases, it is important that all members of the dental team develop foundational knowledge for the care of this patient population. This course presents information on select morbidities that are typical in these children and adolescents, and aids clinicians in developing rational thought processes for gathering information from these patients and their caregivers. Equipped with this information, the dental team can develop appropriate dental treatment plans and continuing care regimens that best serve their pediatric patients with complex medical needs.
