11/112. Garre's osteomyelitis of an unusual origin in a 8-year-old child. A case report.

    Garre's osteomyelitis is a type of chronic osteomyelitis that primarily affects children and adolescents. Although the disease is well described in the dental literature and is usually associated with an odontogenic infection resulting from caries, a number of other causative factors have been occasionally reported, such as a dental extraction or a mild periodontitis. There have also been cases of unknown aetiology. This paper describes a case of Garre's osteomyelitis in an 8-year-old child, in whom the condition arose following a local periodontal infection in an ectopically erupting first permanent molar that was in infraocclusion. The lesion remained unresolved for a period of over 6 months as a result of misdiagnosis, following a number of unsuccessful treatment attempts. Identification of the true cause and treatment through periodontal surgery resulted in lesion resolution and resolved the diagnostic problem. dentists should be aware that the periodontium may be a potential source of infection for Garre's osteomyelitis in children, particularly in the presence of ectopically erupting posterior teeth. In such cases, periodontal treatment should be sufficient to treat the disease and extraction of the tooth involved may not be necessary.

12/112. Orthodontic correction of an ectopic mandibular first permanent molar: a case report.

    Ectopic eruption of mandibular first molar is a rare clinical problem. It is one result of an improper balance in the forces of growth and eruption. A case of ectopic eruption of the mandibular first permanent molar is described and the technique for repositioning it is showed.

13/112. Ectopic eruption of maxillary molar tooth--an unusual cause of recurrent sinusitis.

    A 17-year-old male presented with a 3-month history of cough associated with right-sided purulent rhinorrhoea and right facial pain. Nasal endoscopy confirmed the presence of mucopus from the right middle meatus. Plain sinus X-ray assessment showed the presence of an ectopic molar in the right anterosuperior aspect of the maxillary sinus entrapped in soft tissue. Surgical removal of the tooth and the diseased antral tissue was undertaken via a Caldwell-Luc procedure with resolution of symptoms.

14/112. Intranasal tooth as a complication of cleft lip and alveolus in a four year old child: case report and literature review.

    Ectopic position of teeth is not rare. The presence of teeth have been reported in ovaries, testes, anterior mediastinum, and pre-sacral regions. In the maxillofacial region, teeth have been found in maxillary sinus, mandibular condyle, coronoid process, chin, nose, and even orbit. Approximately 50 cases of a tooth in the nasal cavity have been reported in literature. However, an intranasal tooth in cases of cleft lip and palate is comparatively rare. Intranasal teeth can cause problems such as nasal obstruction, chronic rhinorrhea and speech problems. Sometimes however, they are totally symptom-free. We present here an interesting case of an intranasal tooth in a four year-old-boy, who was operated on for cleft lip and alveolus at 6 months of age. The intranasal tooth did not cause any symptoms. The tooth was extracted under general anaesthesia when it was found to be very loosely attached to the nasal mucosa. The case is discussed in the light of relevant literature on intranasal teeth in cases of cleft lip and palate.

15/112. Recurrent infection of a complex odontoma following eruption in the mouth.

    Odontomas are the most common odontogenic tumors, and are classified as either compound or complex lesions. Although its underlying etiology remains unclear, a number of factors appear to be involved (e.g., prior trauma). The lesions are generally diagnosed in the second decade of life, often in the context of routine dental X-ray examinations. A complex odontoma is described in a 22-year-old woman referring discomfort due to overinfection following its aperture into the oral cavity in the distal alveolar region of 2.6. Initial treatment consisted of antibiotics and antiinflammatory drugs. Computed axial tomography revealed a solid, irregular mass in the distal zone of the left maxilla, imprinting upon the region of the maxillary sinus on the same side. Surgical resection was performed, raising the alveolar mucosa and upper left vestibular fundus. The surgical piece contained the amorphous adenoma mass and the tooth 2.7.

16/112. Endoscopic removal of an ectopic third molar obstructing the osteomeatal complex.

    We report a rare case of an ectopic third molar at the level of the osteomeatal complex. A 21-year-old man came to us with a left-sided nasal obstruction of 2 years' duration. Computed tomography of the paranasal sinuses revealed that an aberrant tooth was obstructing the osteomeatal complex and bulging into the ethmoid infundibulum. Opacity of the entire left maxillary sinus indicated the presence of an associated cystic formation. A transnasal endoscopic sinus technique was employed to create a large middle meatal antrostomy and to remove the tooth as well as the cystic contents and cyst wall. Pathologic analysis revealed that the cyst was dentigerous. After recovery from surgery, the patient resumed nasal breathing. The endoscopic surgical approach used in this case caused less morbidity than do the more common methods (e.g., the Caldwell-Luc procedure) of removing ectopic teeth from the sinus.

18/112. Restoration and retention of maxillary anteriors with severe root resorption.

    BACKGROUND: The authors describe the treatment of three patients who had severe apical root resorption of maxillary lateral incisors caused by ectopically erupting canines. Ectopically erupting canines derive from a normal path of eruption and may cause resorption of the adjacent teeth. CASE DESCRIPTION: The authors present the three cases of severe root resorption caused by ectopically erupting canines. They then discuss various prosthetic options; the indications, advantages and disadvantages of various treatment modalities; the long-term retention and esthetic concerns of the patients; and the inherent limitations of restorative treatment. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Increased tooth mobility and long-term retention are significant concerns in cases of patients who have severe root resorption. Attaining stability with lingual splinting can cause esthetic problems. An interdisciplinary approach is necessary to provide optimal care for the patient.

19/112. Correction of a bilateral maxillary canine-first premolar transposition in the late mixed dentition.

    A bilateral maxillary canine-first premolar transposition was treated during the late mixed dentition. The correct tooth order was obtained by moving the teeth into their proper positions. The treatment mechanics and the sequencing of treatment are described.

20/112. Nasal teeth: report of three cases.

    The ectopic eruption of the teeth into the nasal cavity is a rare phenomenon. We report cases: two involving the nasal cavity and one involving the hard palate and complicated by aspergillus rhinitis. We describe the clinical and radiologic presentation of these cases and discuss their etiology, complications, diagnosis, and treatment.
