Abstract

Traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) are common in children of all ages and can result in tooth breakage, displacement, or loss, severely impacting function, esthetics, and psychological well-being. Almost 25% of children experience dental trauma at school, with men being two times as likely as women, the upper central incisors are most often affected, with a high frequency between 8 and 10.A survey was used to perform this cross-sectional investigation of Riyadh's dental. A simple random sampling method was used to include 450 dentists in the research. A questionnaire method comprised of questions on demographics and awareness and understanding of oral traumatic injuries was developed as part of the study.

The mean overall knowledge score was 7.11±2.90. The results showed that the presence of ongoing training sessions on dental trauma had a substantial impact on the mean knowledge (P = 0.039). The overall awareness of dentists towards the management of dental trauma is satisfactory, with their training having a significant impact.
