Rohan Krishnan, Timothy Whitworth, Nicholas Coughtrey, Tony Skapetis*
School teachers’ initial management of traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) is crucial to the injured tooth’s long-term prognosis. Previous international studies have suggested that teachers lack the necessary knowledge to manage dental trauma appropriately. The aim of the study was to assess the knowledge of Australian school teachers in their initial management of TDIs and to compare this with previously published literature. Furthermore, the study aims to investigate any differences in knowledge between primary school teachers working in public versus private metropolitan schools.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate by means of a literature review the relationship of the systemic condition and the oral cavity. Scientific evidence confirms that low glycemic control, inflammatory process in articulations or the presence of cardiovascular problems may be related to a condition of periodontal disease.
