Abstract

Oral trauma is commonly observed in the emergency department, and the emergency physician has the opportunity to greatly improve prognosis for these types of injuries through prompt and appropriate initial management. Injuries resulting from oral trauma can be physically and psychologically devastating to patients, and initial treatment must often be accomplished before dental consultation is available. This article provides the emergency physician with guidelines for diagnosis, initial management, and referral for oral injuries.
