In this sense, trauma to teeth and their supporting
tissues. This involves injuries to the dental hard tissues
(enamel, dentine and cement), the pulp and the alveolar
process, to concussion of the tooth to avulsion of the
tooth and its re-implacement within its socket.
This is a broad subject and other people explain it far
better than me.
Regardless though, I list here very useful websites and
also a variety of articles about dental trauma.
