Abstract Objective: Splinting in primary dentition is limited to several traumatic dental injuries. The prognosis associated with splint use has not been fully investigated. In this study, we investigated the outcomes of traumatic injuries in primary teeth treated with splinting. Materials and methods: We retrospectively analysed 137 children with root fractures and lateral and extrusive luxation injuries to their primary teeth who were treated with semi-rigid splints between 2010 and 2016… 
Root Fractures in the Primary Teeth and Their Management: A Scoping Review
TLDR
Correct radiological diagnosis, immediate repositioning and semi-rigid splinting could be conservative methods to prevent premature tooth loss in very young patients.
Root Fracture and Extrusive Luxation in Primary Teeth and Their Management: A Case Report
TLDR
The importance of well-timed diagnosis and treatment and of regular follow-up of traumatized teeth as they may affect both dentitions with a negative impact on Oral Health-Related Quality of Life is strengthened.
Traumatic Dental Injuries in Children: The Controversies of Managing Primary Tooth luxation Injuries

TLDR
There appears to be little definitive evidence in the dental literature for the management of luxation injuries in primary dentition; namely, intrusive luxations and lateral luxations, and approaches to management of primary tooth luxation focus on the degree of injury or occlusal interference.
The Basics of Splinting in Dentoalveolar Traumatology
TLDR
This chapter deals with splint classification (rigid and flexible), the basic characteristics of splints, the indications, and methods of application.

TLDR
These updates of the International Association of Dental Traumatology's (IADT) Guidelines include a comprehensive review of the current dental literature using EMBASE, MEDLINE, PUBMED, Scopus and Cochrane Databases for Systematic Reviews searches from 1996-2019 and a search of the journal DentalTraumatology from 2000-2019.
Guidelines for the Management of Traumatic Dental Injuries: 3. Injuries in the Primary Dentition.
TLDR
The International Association of Dental Traumatology has developed a consensus statement after a review of the dental literature and group discussions to delineate an approach for the immediate or urgent care for management of primary teeth injuries.
Traumatic Dental Injuries
TLDR
An in-depth analysis of aspects related to the prevalence, etiology, risk factors, preventive measures, and treatment of TDI in the primary and permanent dentition from an epidemiological standpoint is performed.
Dentoalveolar Fractures: New Orthodontic Protocol Proposal and Pilot Study.
TLDR
The operative protocol proposed appears to be a rational choice since it allows a single orthodontic device to be an "active splinting system", with fast application time, good acceptance by the patient, low complications rate; moreover, it produces any planned dental movements for further orthodentic treatments.
A minimally invasive technique for primary tooth extraction: a case report
TLDR
The periotome device showed to be an alternative to improve pediatric surgery due to better patient behavior and healing, and to reduced procedure length.

Intra-alveolar root fracture in primary teeth.
TLDR
The root-fractured primary teeth can be maintained by reduction of tooth mobility and immobilization with a semi-rigid splint.
Sequelae of trauma to primary maxillary incisors. I. Complications in the primary dentition.
TLDR
The immediate as well as the long-term consequences of trauma were studied and the need for scientifically based treatment strategies for managing and reducting complications after trauma in the primary dentition is stressed.
Luxation injuries of primary anterior teeth--prognosis and related correlates.
TLDR
There was an association between the development of post-traumatic sequelae and the repositioning of displaced teeth and a marked increase risk of necrosis when repositioned, and those groups with the best post-trauma tooth survival during the first year postinjury were those > 5 years old and < 2 years old.

TLDR
Although this case illustrated the favorable prognosis of two primary teeth with root fractures and severely mobile coronal fragments by a conservative approach, more scientific evidences are needed and frequent recalls are necessary when primary root fractures are attempted to be managed with splinting.
Traumatized primary anterior teeth. Prognosis related to calcific reactions in the pulp cavity.
TLDR
The frequency of a complicating pulp necrosis and the process of the physiologic root resorption were studied in traumatized primary teeth exhibiting partial or total pulp obliteration in 72 children aged 0.7--5.7 years at the time of injury.
Evaluation of the effect of delayed management of traumatized permanent teeth.
Long‐term prognosisof 66 permanent anterior teethwith root fracture
TLDR
It is concluded that when optimally treated by repositioning, fixation and relief of occlusion, anterior teeth with root fracture have a favorable prognosis, and even when pulp necrosis occurs, the long-term prognosis is good.

TLDR
After receiving emergency dental care in the emergency department, 43% of the teeth presented for follow-up dental care and only 22% were followed up for greater than 6 months, suggesting that severe periodontal injuries resulted in treatment complications.
