Is there a truly great online resource for the management of dental trauma cases?
Can there be many more stressful occasions during a busy day at your office than when an emergency dental trauma case shows up unexpectedly requiring immediate treatment? You are already running behind and the patient (and often the parent) is crying and upset. You don’t deal with this type of case every day, and you are concerned about putting a foot wrong “under the spotlight.” What do you do next?
Having consulted with some eminent experts in the field of pediatric dentistry, I have no hesitation in recommending the Dental Trauma Guide website to you as an excellent “at the fingertips” resource to get you out of a tight corner when the emergency dental trauma patient presents. The principal architect of this site is Professor Jens Andreasen, from Copenhagen, who is a world leader in the field of dental trauma management.
This beautifully illustrated site takes you through diagnosis in a clear step-by-step manner. It also walks you through managing the various types of traumas that can affect deciduous and permanent teeth. The URL for this site is http://www.dentaltraumaguide.org/. I believe it is well worth bookmarking.
