The aesthetics of the mouth are important in determining overall facial attractiveness. People with a relatively normal dental appearance are perceived as more attractive, more intelligent and more desirable as friends. Although the oral region comprises only 1% of the body area it accounts for 5% of all bodily injuries, and of facial injuries, dental injuries are the most common. A US survey among people aged 6-50 years showed that 1 in 4 had evidence of dental trauma. 
Complex Dentoalveolar Fractures: Main Clinical Variables Description and Analysis.
TLDR
Tooth loss prognosis following complex dentoalveolar trauma is related to the clinical features of the fracture, particularly the status of the alveolar socket and the possibility of using splinting as treatment.

TLDR
The International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) has developed a consensus statement after a review of the dental literature and group discussions that represent the current best evidence, based on literature research and professional opinion.
Prognosis of permanent teeth in the line of mandibular fractures.
TLDR
A total of 45 mandibular fracture patients with 54 teeth in the fracture line were evaluated retrospectively, and pulp necrosis was found more frequently in the older patients and in cases in which the time elapsing between the injury and the follow-up was longer.

TLDR
The clinical and radiographic findings concern 29 patients with alveolar fractures, involving 71 permanent teeth, and a multivariate analysis was used to study the relationship between postoperative complications, such as pulp necrosis, pulp obliteration, and 18 clinical factors.
Traumatic oral vs non-oral injuries.
TLDR
The study reveals substantial differences between oral and non-oral injuries with regard to age-groups, site of injury, and injury mechanism and stresses the importance of including oral injuries to achieve a high validity in body injury surveillance systems.
Clinical considerations in the diagnosis and treatment of intra-alveolar root fractures.
Clinical and radiographic data collected from the 14 cases of intra-alveolar root-fractures, with follow-ups of one to 25 years, complement the findings of other investigators in that the prognosis
Prevalence of Incisor Trauma in Persons 6 to 50 Years of Age: United States, 1988–1991
TLDR
The first national overall and age-specific population-based prevalence of injury to incisor teeth among individuals ages 6–50 is reported and differences in the prevalence of dental trauma among gender, racial, and ethnic groups are examined.
Incidence of traumatic tooth injuries in children and adolescents in the county of Västmanland, Sweden.
TLDR
Using a classification according to the most serious tooth injury in each episode, 33% of the episodes had resulted in complicated injuries in which the pulpal tissue and/or periodontal membrane was severely damaged.
