  • How to classify traumatic injuries to the teeth

  • Root resorption
  • The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) 2020 guidelines, and the changes from the previous 2012 guidelines

  • Correctly diagnosis and manage dental trauma
  • Practically apply the IADT 2020 guidelines
  • Review and manage root resorption following trauma
