Abstract

Introduction: Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) refer to injury to the teeth and/or peridontium and perioral soft tissues. To date, very few dental trauma studies conducted in the university setting, thus the aim of this research is to provide an epidemiological data of TDI cases among patients attending Kulliyyah of Dentistry (KOD), IIUM Kuantan Campus.
