Every military clinic sees their fair share of anterior trauma. It can range from the chipped tooth while eating dinner, to a scuffle during the patient's time off, to the butt of a rifle. Every Soldier has a story and with that story comes a different type of dental alveolar trauma. The purpose of this course is to provide some ways that we can look at managing trauma for a successful esthetic outcome and long term biological success.
