 Dental trauma more often occurs due to accident or sports injury, in which majority of case consists of chipped off teeth and less often cases include knocked out tooth (avulsed tooth),and in some cases fracture of jaw also occurs . Treatment depends upon the type, location, severity and involvement of different types of tissues of each injury

Any dental injury however mild it is required dental examination immediately, sometimes neighbouring teeth ,soft tissues and hard tissues  suffers an additional unnoticed injury that will only be detected by a good dental exam ,

  • Jaw fracture , can be further classified as maxilla fracture, mandibular fracture , the fracture may or may not involve alveolar bone

Treatment :- depending up on case , it can be treated by suture, if injury is only to the soft tissue .
