To describe the reported cases of dentoalveolar trauma in temporary and permanent teeth in the Clinical Unit of Dentoalveolar Trauma of the Chilean Army in the period 2014-2019.

Materials and Methods:

Cross-sectional descriptive study. All cases attended with a diagnosis of dentoalveolar trauma between 2 and 80 years old were included in the study population. A descriptive analysis was performed using measures of central tendency and a logistic regression model.


A total of 326 cases were analyzed, predominantly male gender, with a mean age of 25.4 years. Thirty-eight percent corresponded to subluxation, the most frequent etiology being fall with 69% and the place of the event, home with 35.6%. Most of the beneficiaries were family members entitled to care in the army system, and took less than 7 days to come for attention with 54.6%.


The most frequent type of dentoalveolar trauma was subluxation. As for the etiology, falls and hits with objects stand out, mostly at home, affecting mainly men under 30 years of age. The time to come for consultation and start the corresponding treatment was within 7 days.
