No previous epidemiological study has investigated the effect of predisposing factors of traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) on the type of crown fracture in young incisors among children residing in Gurugram. Such information is required for the planning and evaluation of health services. The aim of this case series was to assess the relationship of TDIs and associated factors among 8-15 year-old schoolchildren in Gurugram, Haryana. The consequence of a fractured tooth depends on the type of injury, delay in treatment, if any, and quality of treatment rendered. Studying all these aspects may improve our understanding of how maxillary anterior teeth behave as one aesthetic and functional unit and might give us a better insight for the formulation of treatment planning.
