1/206. One-appointment composite crown: an alternative to conventional crown and bridge.

    When presented with little coronal tooth structure remaining, four options exist: (1) extraction only, (2) extraction and restoration, (3) root canal therapy and a cast restoration (which may involve crown lengthening and/or orthodontic extrusion), or (4) root canal therapy and a composite/amalgam crown. A technique for the composite crown option is described with case presentations.

2/206. Reattachment of a subgingivally fractured central incisor tooth fragment: report of a case.

    A case report of a 9-year-old boy with a fractured maxillary right incisor and ulcerated pulp at the fracture line is presented. On satisfactory completion of a root canal filling one week later, the access cavity was restored with glass ionomer cement. The fragment was reattached by a light activated hybrid composite during the flap surgery. tetracycline hydrochloride was applied on open root surface for a better healing.

3/206. Unusual horizontal and vertical root fractures of maxillary molars: an 11-year follow-up.

    Intra-alveolar root fractures of posterior teeth are rare when compared with other dental injuries. This case report describes one vertical and two horizontal root fractures of teeth 3, 14, and 15. The teeth all tested normal to cold and electric pulp tests. The patient reported no history of accidental trauma, and no signs of scarring were found. These fractures were discovered during a routine full-mouth radiographic survey. All teeth were asymptomatic and in good function. During the 11 yr that followed, there was no dental treatment, except for routine periodontal maintenance. The patient had one abscess that occurred after 9 yr on tooth 3, which had to be extracted. The upper left molars are surprisingly still in function and asymptomatic. Either occlusal or lateral trauma may be the cause of these fractures. This would strongly suggest night guard appliances for patients who clench or grind. A psychological evaluation of the patient might reveal neurosis, anxiety, or stress situations affecting teeth.

4/206. Treatment of a vertical root fracture.

    This case report presents the successful non-surgical treatment of a vertically fractured tooth by cementation with adhesive resin.

5/206. Root canal treatment of a root-fractured incisor tooth with internal resorption: a case report.

    A case is described in which root canal treatment with calcium hydroxide was used successfully to repair a fracture site with internal resorption of the tooth.

6/206. The dentine-bonding of a fractured non-vital anterior tooth.

    This case illustrates an alternative management of a fractured non-vital incisor using adhesive techniques to avoid the disturbance of, and offer protection to, successful endodontic treatment. The rationale for the maintenance of sound tooth structure and the minimisation of coronal leakage, while adequately restoring aesthetics, is discussed.

7/206. Forced eruption: a multidisciplinary approach for form, function, and biologic predictability.

    There are several treatment options for patients with coronal fractures, subgingival caries perforations, and root resorption. Frequently, forced eruption is not considered, although in many cases of single-rooted teeth, forced eruption is the "gold standard" for producing an esthetic result without jeopardizing periodontal support for adjacent teeth. Sufficient tooth length, achieved through forced eruption, ensures the periodontal health of the "biologic width" and crown margin and thus a successful restorative outcome.

8/206. apexification & apexogenesis.

    When there is pulpal involvement of permanent teeth with incompletely formed roots, techniques for the induction of apical closure should be completed before endodontic therapy is begun. apexification is a method of inducing a calcified barrier at the apex of a nonvital tooth with incomplete root formation. Apexogenesis refers to a vital pulp therapy procedure performed to encourage physiological development and formation of the root end.

9/206. Surgical extrusion of a cervically root-fractured tooth after apexification treatment.

    A case is reported in which an incisor fractured below the alveolar crest 6 months after completion of apexification treatment was surgically extruded for prosthetic coronal restoration. After the surgical procedure, a dowel post was placed in the root canal, a core was built using glass-ionomer cement, and a porcelain veneer crown restoration was completed. The 24-month follow-up examination after surgical, endodontic, and prosthetic treatments showed that the tooth was clinically and radiographically healthy and functioned well.

10/206. Successful root coverage: a human histologic evaluation of a case.

    connective tissue grafts combined with pedicle grafts (subepithelial grafts) have been shown to be effective in obtaining root coverage. Unfortunately, little is known about the histology of the results in humans. This is a case report of a tooth with a recession defect that was treated with a subepithelial graft. Complete root coverage was obtained. However, at 5 months postoperative the tooth had to be extracted because of a vertical root fracture. With the patient's permission, a small collar of tissue was removed with the tooth. The sample was processed and evaluated histologically. The results revealed areas of regeneration, with new bone, cementum, and connective tissue attachment coronal to the original gingival margin. No bone grafts or guided tissue regeneration membranes were used. This case report confirms that regeneration is possible with subepithelial grafts.
