Abstract

Dento-alveolar injuries are common in Sri Lanka. Victims of these injuries are unfortunate and go through painful and distressing episodes following trauma. From a medico-legal point of view, a better understanding of dento-alveolar trauma is important in decision making. This must be performed together with a dental specialist preferably a Consultant in Restorative Dentistry. The article highlights the common injuries, their management, prognosis, and medicolegal aspects.
