They were thoroughly examined for injury/fracture to facial region as well as for dental injuries (teeth). Tooth injuries were noted according to Ellis classification. The data was collected, compiled, and put to statistical analysis.

RESULTS: Dental injuries were more in females than males found to be statistically significant with (pā€‰<ā€‰0.05).Crown fracture of maxillary teeth was more as compared to mandibular except molars found to be statistically significant (pā€‰<ā€‰0.05). Root fracture was more in maxillary incisors followed by canine as compared to mandibular incisors and canines found to be insignificant. Avulsion, extrusion and luxation were more in maxilla as compared to mandible found to be significant.
