Injuries to permanent teeth usually result from sport accidents and fights. School-aged boys suffer trauma almost twice as frequently as girls. The upper central incisors are the most commonly injured teeth; upper front teeth protruding more than 4mm appear 2 - 3 times more likely to suffer dental trauma than normally aligned teeth.
