For more detailed information about trauma and treatment a new web site has been setup for dentists by the dental trauma experts in Copenhagen.
NOTE: Dentists may refer to this guide for treatment pathways as dental trauma in Australia is luckly less common.
"Each day in Australia some 5000 children seek medical attention, 170 are hospitalised and about 350 children die annually, the majority from preventable accidents.
Apart from the human suffering the direct medical cost of children's accidents in Australia is $250 million annually, the indirect costs are three fold taking the estimated cost of child accidents to the community to a staggering $1 billion a year." The Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia - an independent non profit organisation dedicated to preventing unintentional death and injury of children.
During the "growing up" years increased activity makes the likelihood of tooth damage due to falls and knocks greater. You can't always prevent mishaps, but makes sure you see your dentist or doctor immediately for advice.
Summer time is supposed to be the most injury prone time of year. Watch children and look at ways of preventing injuries.
According to The Children's Hospital Westmead: A quarter of all 15 year olds have had some type of injury to their front teeth - not all accidents result in complete loss of the tooth but this is still a very high number of injuries.
