New Treatment Guide for Dental Trauma


How the Dental Trauma Guide can help you
The Dental Trauma Guide can be used by the dental practitioner to verify diagnosis, and gain valuable advice in regard to treatment and follow-up. In addition the dental practitioner will be able to get a statistical overview of the predicted healing outcome for his current patient. The website is also a choice as teaching material for dental education and we expect many dental schools to use the Dental Trauma Guide as part of their curriculum. The illustrations and the many treatment animations give easy insight into the complex world of dental traumatology.
The team behind the Dental Trauma Guide
The Dental Trauma Guide is run by a research group at the University Hospital of Copenhagen under the leadership of Jens Ove Andreasen. Dr. Odont H.c Jens Ove Andreasen is an Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgeon who has worked for 40 years with clinical and experimental research in dental traumatology at the University Hospital of Copenhagen. He is the author of 11 textbooks and 350 scientific articles and he is a former president of the International Association of Dental Traumatology (1989-2001).
The Dental Trauma Guide is linked with the International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) and the treatment advice given is in compliance to the IADT trauma guidelines.
What they are saying about us
“I am personally very proud of the support that the Foundation has provided for Dr.
Andreasen for this project,” says Dr. Leif K. Bakland, executive director of the International
Association of Dental Traumatology. “Dental trauma is an area where endodontists
have become the recognized leaders within the profession and the work
being done by Dr. Andreasen (who is an Honorary AAE member) will further raise the
esteem by which our specialty is viewed.”
Dr. M. Lamar Hicks, clinical professor at the University of Maryland, notes that, “this
project is potentially one of the most important recent undertakings in dental health
care because of its worldwide ramifications for improving the quality of life for literally
millions of people who suffer dental trauma. It will do so through a sophisticated software
program that will provide critical assistance to dental practitioners in the United
States and around the globe in making proper diagnoses, developing effective treatment
plans and ultimately improving prognoses.”
