Abstract

This study analysis 16 cases of dental injuries occuring during endotracheal intubation. The overall rate was 1 out of 6000 cases of intubation. As exspected, the upper jaw teeth are most often involved. Partial dislocations were the most common lesion, together with dental fractures. A well-documented dental evaluation before delivery of anesthetics and appropriate precautions and protective devices during intubation will prevent most dental trauma related to endotracheal intubation. Also, early use of dental and risk management services often will ensure timely resolution of such problems.
