1/112. Premature dental eruption: report of case.

    This case report reviews the variability of dental eruption and the possible sequelae. Dental eruption of the permanent teeth in cleft palate children may be variable, with delayed eruption the most common phenomenon. A case of premature dental eruption of a maxillary left first premolar is demonstrated, however, in a five-year-old male. This localized premature dental eruption anomaly was attributed to early extraction of the primary dentition, due to caries.

2/112. Orthodontic management of mandibular lateral incisor-canine transpositions: reports of cases.

    This article presents different treatment aspects in three mandibular lateral incisor-canine transposition cases. The early identification of transposed teeth simplifies orthodontic correction. Incomplete transposition cases can be managed successfully by interceptive orthodontic treatment. If complete transposition occurs, two treatment alternatives may be possible: Extraction of the transposed tooth or keep the teeth in their transposed positions.

3/112. root resorption: another long-term outcome.

    Case history is presented of an indigenous Zambian girl. Initial surgical repositioning is shown and at a later stage when the tooth had erupted into the nasolabial vestibule and an orthodontic correction was performed. Surgical trauma as well as orthodontic forces may have precipitated root resorption; however, the aim of saving a tooth has been achieved.

4/112. nasolacrimal duct obstruction secondary to ectopic teeth.

    OBJECTIVE: To describe two patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) caused by ectopic eruption of teeth. The literature concerning nasal and other unusual ectopic sites of tooth eruption is reviewed. DESIGN: Two interventional case reports and literature review. PARTICIPANTS: A 3-year-old girl with epiphora and recurrent dacryocystitis of the right eye. Previous medical and surgical management was unsuccessful. A 32-year-old female with a long history of right eye discomfort and epiphora. Previous examinations and workup were negative. INTERVENTION: A computed tomographic (CT) scan of the orbits and sinuses was performed in both patients. The ectopic teeth were surgically removed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Nasolacrimal system function and response to treatment at the last follow-up were recorded. RESULTS: In the first patient, CT imaging disclosed two teeth within the right inferior meatus compressing the nasolacrimal duct. In the second patient, CT revealed a large dental structure in the maxillary sinus compressing the nasolacrimal duct. Endoscopic tooth extraction and nasolacrimal duct probing in the first patient and surgical removal of the dental structure in the second patient effected complete resolution of symptoms. Both patients were symptom free at last follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: These cases suggest that ectopic eruption of teeth should be added to the differential diagnosis of NLDO. Surgical removal of the ectopic teeth compressing the nasolacrimal duct results in resolution of the lacrimal drainage obstruction.

5/112. Transposition of mesial and distal aspects of maxillary first molars: case report.

    Congenital absence of one or more teeth, hypodontia, is the most common developmental anomaly and is often accompanied by the presence of other tooth anomalies. In this case two Japanese sisters have several congenitally missing primary and permanent teeth and morphological abnormalities of maxillary first molars. One sister has transposition of mesial and distal aspects of a maxillary first molar, whose cusps display a normal shape. Another sister has maxillary first molars, which look like maxillary second molars. Mesio-distally shift of teeth is a very rare anomaly making this particular case important to analyze the teeth formation and development.

6/112. Ectopic eruption of maxillary canine and premolars: case report.

    This article presents a case of ectopic eruption of permanent teeth in the maxilla in the late mixed dentition. The authors advocate early diagnosis of ectopic eruption with a closer follow-up during the transition from primary to permanent dentition and space maintenance, as a way to avoid active orthodontic treatment for alignment ectopic erupted teeth.

7/112. A comparison of autotransplantation and orthodontics in a case exhibiting two ectopic upper cuspids.

    Bilateral severely ectopic maxillary cuspids were treated differently on each side. On one side the ectopic cuspid was moved into position orthodontically, and on the other, the ectopic cuspid was positioned by autotransplantation. The orthodontic positioning took a long time and the tooth exhibited root resorption. Treatment time for the autotransplantation positioning was far quicker, and there was no resorption nor were there any other side effects.

8/112. 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.

9/112. Orthodontic correction of a transposed maxillary canine and lateral incisor.

    Tooth transposition presents a major challenge in the correction of a malocclusion. A dental transposition is an uncommon disturbance affecting 0.4% of the population, yet the treatment difficulties make this anomaly an occurrence of orthodontic interest and a source of clinical interest. This case report shows the unilateral transposition of a maxillary canine with a lateral incisor that was treated by orthodontically reversing the transposed tooth positions. An analysis of the clinical concerns in the treatment of this problem is presented.

10/112. Spontaneous improvement in position of canines from apparently hopeless positions.

    Two cases are presented, each with both unerupted maxillary canines so badly positioned that eruption seemed unlikely. However, over a period of approximately three years, three out of the four initially displaced canines did erupt; the improvements in position being unrelated to whether or not the associated primary canine was extracted. Three out of four primary canines were removed. These cases highlight the difficulties in predicting canine eruption for individual patients.
