1/339. 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. ( info)

2/339. 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. ( info)

3/339. 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. ( info)

4/339. 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. ( info)

5/339. 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. ( info)

6/339. Resin-ionomer and hybrid-ionomer cements: part II, human clinical and histologic wound healing responses in specific periodontal lesions.

    Twenty-five subjects with a total of 50 subgingival restorations participated in this study. At the beginning of the investigation, nine teeth that were considered hopeless because of the extent of their pathology were selected for extraction to evaluate histologically the restorations and their effect on the adjacent tissues. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the responses to the clinical applications as well as to the placement of resin-ionomers in subgingival lesions. Clinical and histologic evidence of epithelial and connective tissue adherence to resin-ionomer restorative materials was observed during the healing process. ( info)

7/339. MGDS log diary case report.

    This log diary describes the treatment provided to Mrs ED, a 55-year-old female who presented with a 'broken front cap'. She also requested a complete course of treatment. This case report includes details of the treatment provided: Emergency/immediate treatment. Full history and examination and special investigations. diagnosis and treatment planning. Provision of periodontal and restorative treatment. crown lengthening and extractions. Provision of milled crowns and a post core and crown. Provision of upper and lower partial cobalt chrome dentures. ( info)

8/339. 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. ( info)

9/339. 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. ( info)

10/339. 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)
