The incidence of orofacial and dental trauma as a result of a sports-related injury continues to rise due to the growth in athletic participation among children and adults. Regardless of preventive measures taken, damage and injury to the oral cavity during participation in sports can still occur. Luxations, tooth and root fractures, bony fractures, and avulsions involving one or more teeth are a possibility. Methods and techniques to address the immediate dental needs of the injured athlete after trauma are well documented over many decades (Young et al., Sports Health 7:250–255, 2015). However, not to be overlooked are the treatment planning considerations and long-term restorative concerns for the individual after the initial trauma. A best-practice protocol will be outlined with consideration of the athlete’s age, sport, and continued participation level.
