1/192. Severe lateral luxation and root fracture: report of a case with 5-year follow-up.

    A case of severe lateral luxation and root fracture in upper incisors is reported. Treatment involved the repositioning and fixation of the injured teeth and endodontic treatment with calcium hydroxide. The importance of long-term follow-up is emphasized. ( info)

2/192. replantation of avulsed teeth: considerations and complications.

    Avulsion of teeth is a traumatic dental injury which can be managed by replantation. Important considerations for successful replantations are highlighted. Several sequelae to replantation are discussed in relation to the clinical features observed in a patient seen 6 years after replantation of two avulsed upper incisors. Many of these complications might have been avoided if the patient had returned to the clinic for root canal therapy shortly after the teeth was replanted. ( info)

3/192. replantation of avulsed central incisor with advanced periodontal disease: a case report.

    This paper describes the case of a 31-year-old woman with advanced periodontal disease who lost a tooth due to trauma. The avulsed tooth had minimal bony support of only 4-5 mm. The patient described was under good periodontal maintenance. The tooth was kept moist, and replantation occurred within an hour of avulsion. The tooth was returned to its position, splinted, and later endodontically treated. After 2 years the tooth appears and functions normally as it did before avulsion. ( info)

4/192. Management of an avulsed primary incisor.

    The case describes the management of an avulsed maxillary central primary incisor of a 3 1/2-year-old girl. The tooth was retained in the oral cavity for 30 min. After replantation it was splinted for 17 days. At day 11 the root canal was completely instrumented and obturated with a calcium hydroxide paste. The 1-year follow-up documented no pathologic clinical or radiographic findings. One and a half years after the trauma the tooth was extracted since a fistula and extensive external inflammatory resorption had developed. The permanent successor erupted along with its neighboring central incisor without any complications 6 months later. Conventional approaches for treating avulsed permanent teeth could also be applied to avulsed primary incisors to preserve them for a certain period without the additional risk of damaging their developing permanent successors.

5/192. Contemporary treatment of the resorbed avulsed tooth: a case report.

    This report describes the treatment sequence after traumatic loss of a maxillary central incisor in a 15-year-old patient. Following extraoral root canal treatment and initially successful replantation, the case presented 9 years later with complete root resorption. After augmentation with an autologous mandibular corticocancellous graft, a dental implant was placed in a second stage surgery. The case highlights the challenge facing clinicians in providing the appropriate standard of care for today's treatment options. ( info)

6/192. Complete replacement resorption after replantation of maxillary incisors: report of case.

    This article describes the treatment of a 17-year-old patient with complete root resorption of the maxillary permanent central and lateral incisors following avulsion and replantation seven years ago. The most important factor influencing the prognosis of replanted teeth is the status of the periodontal ligament (PDL). As a result of replantation, the PDL cells necrosed and tooth replacement resorption occurred. The main factors, which affected the resorption after replantation and survival of PDL cells, could be summarize as; dry extraoral time greater than 30 minutes, the kept tooth in a dry environment, touching the cementum surface, and splint treatment for a prolonged time. Since complete root resorption was found in our case, these factors probably also occurred. ( info)

7/192. A case report of a vital replanted tooth with unfavourable extra-alveolar condition: a 10-year follow-up.

    This case report describes the survival of a maxillary left central incisor after an avulsion injury under unfavourable extra-alveolar condition, when the patient was 9 years old. At subsequent clinical follow-ups, the tooth maintained vitality 10 years after the injury. There was sign of gradual obliteration of the root canal space. Concomitantly, the replanted tooth manifested typical characteristics of ankylosis with minimally detectable resorption complication. ( info)

8/192. Conservative treatment of severely luxated maxillary primary central incisors: case report.

    The treatment and follow-up evaluation of two orally luxated maxillary primary central incisors in a three-year-old girl is described. The injured teeth were displaced into a cross-bite with their mandibular opposing teeth. They were repositioned shortly after the injury and splinted with composite resin for two weeks. oral hygiene instructions and antibiotic therapy were prescribed. Two weeks after the injury a necrotic pulp was removed and the root canals filled with a resorbable paste. Thirty months after the injury, the teeth and the surrounding tissues were clinically and radiographically asymptomatic and physiologic root resorption could be noted. The permanent successors erupted soon after natural exfoliation of the injured primary teeth. Only mild hypocalcified defects were observed on the permanent incisors. ( info)

9/192. Localization of objects in the anterior areas with a single Panorex radiograph.

    Impacted objects in the anterior dental region can be localized in a labial-palatal direction with a single Panorex film. Clark's rule is applied to the two views of the anterior area obtained. The technique is verified by means of a dry skull with lead markers in known positions, and two clinical cases are reported. ( info)

10/192. Alveolar distraction osteogenesis: a new alternative to bone grafts. Report of three cases.

    case reports of distraction osteogenesis of the alveolar bone, case selection, methods and follow-up of patients seen in the Oral Surgery Group office, new brunswick, NJ. ( info)
