Primary teeth trauma is very common affecting about 25-30 % of the children with primary dentition. The majority of these cases occur before the age of 4 when walking is not still stable and motor skills have not developed enough. It can be classified in many different types ranging from concussion and lateral luxation to avulsion and from crown fractures to root fractures. Many times primary teeth trauma is left untreated or has delayed treatment usually because parents cannot ascertain the seriousness of the injury or are unsure where to seek treatment.
