Traumatised permanent anterior teeth can require endodontic treatment which may be immediate as part of acute trauma management, or delayed due to the development of sequelae. This paper will enable clinical decision making by exploring a range of situations in which endodontic treatment may be indicated, and also offer practical advice regarding effective endodontic treatment for paediatric dental trauma patients.

Endodontic treatment of traumatised permanent teeth in paediatric patients is often challenging. However, with timely decision making and appropriate treatment, these teeth can often last throughout childhood and adolescence thus ensuring that a young patient does not have the social burden of a missing tooth and needing a prosthesis, and has the maximum restorative options available to them as they enter adulthood.
