Abstract Predicting sports-related traumatic injuries is an important concern for dental health professionals. A predictive index has been developed that determines the likelihood of a sports-related traumatic dental injury in children and adolescents. This index can be used to aid in the prevention of injury by understanding who is most likely to be injured and what factors influence the chance of injury. The index has been designed for ease of use by dental health professionals, and has incorporated data collection and tracking features.
