The goal of managing traumatized young permanent tooth is to keep its vitality by immediately stabilizing the tooth in its proper position using a splint. The dentist frequently provides the primary urgent care; therefore knowledge in the appropriate use of splint is essential for efficient management and its prognosis.
Subsequently, the patient mey be referred to an endodontist if the tooth is already stabilized for secondary level care such as endodontic and restorative management.
