Strategies in conservative dentistry against dental avulsion: protocol proposal for decision making


Dental traumatisms have a high prevalence in any population, being the second cause of dental care after caries. They constitute a dental emergency because the time elapsed until the treatment marks the prognosis of the tooth. Of all of them the most serious and complex, is the dental avulsion in which the tooth is completely dislodged from the alveolus and must be reimplanted immediately if it is a permanent tooth. It is important that both the children and their caregivers know how to act in the face of an emergency of this nature, and that the dentist himself is clear that the cascade of decision-making must be present in the face of each clinical situation.
