Evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of the traumatized patient

Dent Clin North Am. 1995 Jan;39(1):15-24.


This article discusses the early assessment of the patient who has sustained an oral injury. The various types of orofacial injuries are reviewed, with emphasis on their early management. The dentist's early assessment of the patient must include a general evaluation of the patient as well as a more specific dental evaluation because the general dentist is often the first person to assess a patient who has been injured.
