A unique, multidisciplinary manual for the treatment of pediatric dental emergencies for general practitioners and non-pediatric specialists

Management of Dental Emergencies in Children and Adolescents presents the diagnostic skills, treatment options, and management strategies necessary to provide effective and appropriate dental care for children and adolescents.

This authoritative manual helps dental practitioners manage potentially stressful situations with children and adolescents while improving their competence in a wide range of urgent pediatric situations. An emphasis on managing the therapeutic demands of both younger patients and their parents enables readers to have greater confidence in handling demanding emergency situations in daily practice. An expert team of contributors explain how to manage tooth substance loss, endodontic problems in deciduous teeth, the long‐term consequences of early tooth loss, the dental issues related to oral health, and more.

Guiding practitioners through the unique challenges of pediatric dental emergencies, this book:

  • Explains the differences in treating and managing dental emergencies in children compared to adults
  • Covers all types of pediatric dental emergencies including open pulp in permanent and deciduous teeth, missing teeth, and non-infective dental conditions 
  • Offers clinical vignettes and photographs to highlight clinical relevance
  • Includes chapters by experts in multiple disciplines such as endodontics, restorative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, and orthodontics

The first textbook to focus exclusively on young patients in need of acute dental care, Management of Dental Emergencies in Children and Adolescents is a much-needed resource for general and specialist dentists as well as trainee and specialist pediatric dentists.
