Background: the progressive increasement of dentoalveolar traumas, its unsteady evolution in middle and short term motivated the realization of this investigation. Objective: to identify the evolution of traumatic lesions in permanent teeth in patients who came to the emergency room from July to December 2010 and evolved from August to December 2011. Methodology: a transversal descriptive study was carried out. The study population which coincides with the sample was 45 patients with trauma in permanent teeth. The variables: age classification of traumatic lesions, treatment, evolution, yearly clinical evolution. Results: the group 8 to 11 showed higher numbers and the non-complicated fractures of the crown were the most frequent. The pulpar covering was the most used emergency treatment. Signs of clinical affectations in the yearly evolution of some patients were found. The patients with a complete follow up of the treatment evolved satisfactorily. Conclusions: The patients who had more complicated fractures showed signs of clinical affectations.
