The aim of the study is to identify the prevalence of traumatic dental injuries to permanent anterior teeth among 8-12 years old school children. The objective of the study is to identify the prevalence of traumatic dental injuries to permanent anterior teeth among 8-12 years old school children through clinical examination. Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports related injuries. They are most common during childhood. Chipped teeth are the most common traumatic dental injuries where dislodged or knocked out teeth are less frequent but more severe injuries. Treatment generally depends on type, location and severity of injury. Children of age 8-12 years were examined and if there are any traumatic dental injuries they are recorded and finally statistics is done to assess the prevalence rate. Since very less attention has been paid to traumatic dental injuries, assessing their prevalence rate have become essential.
