Özet

BACKGROUND: Hospital emergency departments (EDs) are confronted with managing dental emergencies of both traumatic and non-traumatic origin. However, the literature suggests inadequate knowledge of the management of traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) among medical professionals. The aim of this study was to investigate the knowledge and attitudes regarding management of TDIs among Istanbul ED physicians.
