1/10. Unusual dental injuries following facial fractures: report of three cases.

    We report 3 cases of unusual dental injuries following facial fractures. The first patient sustained intrusion of a maxillary incisor into the nasal cavity following a mandibular fracture. The tooth dislocated into the pharynx and was found lodged in the piriform fossa during surgery. The second patient sustained intrusion of molars into the maxillary sinus following maxillary and mandibular fractures. His treatment was delayed due to life-threatening hemorrhage. The third case involved ingestion of multiple avulsed teeth into the alimentary tract following severe maxillofacial fractures. Although the diagnosis was made more than a week after the injury, the patient did not suffer any complications as a result of the dental avulsion. The aim of this report is to emphasize the possibility of associated dental injuries in patients with facial fractures. The trauma surgeon should be cognizant of the importance of carrying out a thorough intraoral examination during the initial evaluation. Any missing tooth should be considered as possibly displaced into other tissue compartments, and must be routinely searched for with x-rays of the skull, cervical spine, chest, and abdomen. If full intrusion injury is suspected, further diagnostic investigation with facial computed tomography scanning may be worth while.

2/10. Malformation in the primary and permanent dentitions following trauma prior to tooth eruption: a case report.

    Dento-facial injuries that occur prior to the eruption of teeth in the primary dentition are rare, but can result in damage to the primary dentition. We report a rare case where an injury to the anterior maxilla and mandible of an infant prior to primary tooth eruption resulted in hypoplasia, displacement and impaction of the primary dentition and damage to a developing permanent tooth.

3/10. Retrograde treatment in an extensive implant-tooth-supported reconstruction.

    diagnosis and treatment of chronic apical periodontitis associated with an abutment tooth in an extensive tooth-implant-supported fixed prosthesis is reported. Careful, complete interpretation of clinical data was imperative because the periapical radiolucency presented around the apex of a vital tooth. A retrograde endodontic approach was used to prevent an adverse outcome to the complex rehabilitative treatment that had been performed over many years.

4/10. Traumatic gemination--triple tooth. Survey of the literature and report of a case.

    Gemination and twinning are two rarely encountered developmental abnormalities. Although the precise etiology remains unknown, genetic predisposition is often suggested in the process. In the present study a maxillary incisor with three crowns of conical shape and three roots which were presumed to be the gemination of the tooth due to trauma, is reported.

5/10. Ectopic eruption of a maxillary canine following trauma.

    Traumatic events at an early age may lead to developmental dental anomalies and ectopic tooth eruption. A case is reported in which a traumatic injury at two months of age resulted in the development of supernumerary teeth in the upper right premaxillary region. The maxillary canine ectopically erupted or transposed into the space left by the missing central incisor and eliminated the need for a prosthesis in this region.

6/10. Prosthodontic rehabilitation after traumatic tooth and bone loss: a clinical report.

    Traumatic injuries from motor vehicle accidents may cause anatomic deficiencies in soft and hard tissues. Successful treatment of patients with such deficiencies may include preprosthetic surgery using osseointegrated implants to increase prosthesis retention and stability. This article describes the treatment of a motor vehicle accident victim whose anterior teeth and supporting tissues were lost.

7/10. Trauma to an osseointegrated anterior dental implant: a case report.

    Single tooth implant systems have been shown to offer a safe and highly predictable option for the replacement of anterior teeth. There is however, a paucity of evidence on the result of trauma to single tooth implant systems, particularly in the vulnerable anterior maxillary area. This article presents a report on the outcome of a traumatic incident to an osseointegrated single tooth implant.

8/10. North American Burkitt's lymphoma presenting with intraoral symptoms.

    A case is presented in which posterior tooth mobility and pain, bilateral intraoral swelling of the mandible, and anterior open bite following an incident of facial trauma were the presenting symptoms of a 4-year-old, white American male with Burkitt-type malignant lymphoma. Radiographic examination revealed multiple osteolytic lesions in the body of the mandible, with loss of osseous trabecular architecture, and generalized loss of lamina dura in both maxillary and mandibular arches. The patient also had bone marrow involvement at the time of diagnosis. Following the initial course of chemotherapy, the patient experienced a significant resolution of the bilateral mandibular swelling, anterior open bite, tooth mobility, and dental pain. Relapse occurred shortly after remission was achieved, with tumor metastasis to the central nervous system and testes. The tumor remained resistant to further chemotherapeutic treatments and radiation strategems. Because of renal and metabolic complications, Burkitt's lymphoma constitutes an oncologic emergency. If untreated, this rapidly growing tumor is fatal. Early interception and referral of these cases by the examining dentist is crucial.

9/10. An unusual hazard of toothbrushing.

    An unusual complication of toothbrushing in a 20-month-old girl is presented. This occurred as an accident while the child was brushing her teeth. It would appear that such incidents are not uncommon. However, no report of such an injury has been found in the literature.

10/10. Trauma as a possible etiologic factor in maxillary canine impaction.

    A chain of events in the development of the dentition following trauma is described. Shortening of the root of the lateral incisor or displacement of the tooth bud, both as a sequel to trauma, may affect the path of eruption of the adjacent canine after dental injury. Special attention should be paid to the further development and eruption of the directly and indirectly affected teeth.
