Summary of "An Algorithm for Managing Emergent Dental Conditions for Children."

The amount of emergency department dental utilization and related trend analysis data in peer-reviewed literature has increased; yet, little has been written on the actual management of dental emergencies. Often pre-existing medical conditions complicate what might otherwise be a straightforward dental emergency, challenging office-based dentists to manage dental emergencies in a safe manner. With the profession taking a stance on child safety, algorithms and checklists are becoming more important and common in healthcare during complicated scenarios. Additionally, more children are living longer with chronic medical conditions. This manuscript offers an algorithm that can guide clinicians through challenges presented during a dental emergency in children.
