Dear visitors of this web-site!

The incidence of dental trauma increases.
Every third or fourth child has suffered from a tooth injury in the age of 16.

Most often upper front teeth are traumatised.
Patients´ esthetics are considerably impaired. Replacement of lost teeth is expensive.

 

The social costs are estimated to be about

5

Mio. US-$

per year
per million inhabitants

The individual costs after loss of a front tooth in the youth are estimated to about
          10-20 000 $.
