Traumatic injuries are commonly seen in children. There are various causes and factors that make an individual or a particular tooth more susceptible to traumatic injury. Owing to factors like early fine motor development of infants and toddlers, participation in sports and other physical activities, accidental and non-accidental injuries or common reasons, children may suffer from dental trauma. Many facial types like convex facial profiles, class malocclusions and malposition of teeth also make the teeth prone to trauma. This section describes the etiologic and predisposing factors and sketches an outline for a detailed examination of traumatic dental injuries.

Keywords: Etiology of dental trauma, Examination of dental trauma.
