The avulsion of permanent teeth is one of the most serious dental injuries, and correct emergency management is very important for the prognosis. Students of health care must be able to manage such emergency cases properly. Practical skill training on models can significantly improve the performance of students prior to the transition to a real patient. In Slovenia at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Ljubljana, students get knowledge in the field of first aid, including tooth damage. The purpose is to evaluate the effectiveness of first aid training in case of teeth avulsion based on the mannequin-training model. Data collection took place in the context of experimental research methods. A group of students, who practice with the help of the mannequin-training model is better prepared to give first aid in case of tooth avulsion if the accident really happens, compared to a group that was studying without the model.
