Abstract

Abstract The purpose of this study was to analyze primary teeth traumatic injuries at a private pediatric dental center. A total of 114 children with 196 traumatized teeth participated in this study from 1980–1984. The most common injury was concussion. The 1–2 year olds presented the highest number of injuries (p<0.01). Falling against an object was the most common cause of injury in both sexes. Most of the injuries occurred inside the home. July and August were the months that showed the highest number of children with injured teeth; 38.7% of the children visited the dental office the same day of the injury, while 37.8% did so 1–7 days later.
