Abstract

The globalisation process and technology advances have led to the development of new strategies and methodologies in the education system. In the area of health, modern databases and research tools are being elaborated as well. Among different technologies, the mobile app is one of the most used because it affords quick information by optimising navigation and time. In current Odontology, dental trauma is one of the principal causes of dental loss and it is frequent in childhood. The diagnoses are very complex and it is very common do some research to get a better understanding. The aim of this study was to develop a mobile app, called ClickTrauma, for Odontology students and dentists with information about dental trauma in primary dentition, using IOS as operational system.  For the development of the app Java, JavaScript, Ionic were used, and MySQL as a database. ClickTrauma offers seven different functions: diagnoses, clinical techniques and general information about dental trauma in primary dentition. Furthermore the users have access to information on how to prevent dental trauma, references and a quiz. The app was created to improve the quality of paediatric dentistry care. In addition the tool gives information about dental trauma in primary dentition for the user to get a better comprehension of the subject.
