Abstract

Dental injuries are frequently associated with multiple complications. An array of problems may present at different times, from immediate to ones that appear after decades. Careful assessment is mandatory to predict the possible complications, determine the damage, possible rehabilitation options, cost to be incurred, and the medico-legal implications. The case described here is trauma to multiple teeth which have presented with late complications. It describes the importance of regular review, conservative management options, and the medico-legal aspects. This also describes how the clinician can contribute to preventing the transformation of an injury to the grievous category.
