Abstract

Dentists and their assistants are at risk of physical injuries during dental operations. The most common injuries are musculoskeletal. The need to work in a fixed working position using continuous repetitive movements can predispose dentists to wrist ache, lower backache, and neckache. We encountered a rare case of scapholunate dislocation with ligamentous injury, an unusual complication of extraction of teeth.
