PDF: Knowledge about emergency procedure in case of dental trauma among paediatricians in Croatia

The aim of this study was to investigate paediatricians’ actual attitudes towards emergency management of dental injuries, need for potential improvement in their knowledge and motivation for further education.

A larger percentage (95%) of surveyed paediatricians have at least once encountered trauma in the practice and in this case 90% of them contacted the dentist. Three quarters of participants (76%) would correctly hold completely extruded tooth. 

In case of tooth or fragment preservation 60% of the subjects would place the tooth in the saline solution, and only 12% of the respondents would use milk as a transport medium.
