1/52. Orthodontic, genetic, and periodontal considerations in the treatment of impacted maxillary central incisors: A study of twins.

    Treatment of twins each with one impacted maxillary central incisor and a mesiodens is described. Treatment included rapid expansion, extraction of the mesiodens, surgical exposure of the impacted central incisor, and its forced eruption. The impacted incisor was brought into functional position in one patient but was lost in the other because of insufficient root length and high mobility. Orthodontic, genetic, and periodontal considerations of these 2 cases are evaluated.

2/52. Loss of upper permanent central incisor teeth. Case report.

    A case is reported in which elastic bands caused irreversible periodontal destruction around upper central incisor teeth. Every practitioner should be aware of the hazards associated with the use of elastic bands in minor tooth movement.

3/52. Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the mandible presenting following tooth extraction.

    A case of oral non-Hodgkin's lymphoma presenting following a tooth extraction is reported. The clinical presentation was that of a periodontal lesion and an extraction socket that failed to heal, which may have led to initial confusion in diagnosis and management.

4/52. rehabilitation of a periodontal patient with rapidly progressing marginal alveolar bone loss: 1-year follow-up.

    BACKGROUND: The present case report describes a 1-year follow-up of functional rehabilitation of a young periodontal patient with severely advanced, rapidly progressing marginal bone loss treated by using a new splinting material, i.e., glass fiber-reinforced composite (FRC). Apart from one single tooth, the young man had retained all his natural teeth. TREATMENT: Periodontal treatment was based on cleaning and root planing enabled by partial-thickness-flap operations. This method was selected to avoid further damage to the remaining alveolar bone. After healing for 6 months, a cavity retained internal FRC splint was constructed and 1 missing lower molar was replaced by an inlay-retained FRC resin-bonded fixed partial denture (FPD). A 12 months follow-up period revealed a healthy periodontium and good functional and esthetic results. CONCLUSIONS: The new material allows the use of periodontal treatment methods instead of prosthetic alternatives, which until now have been a more generally used approach in the treatment of severely advanced periodontal cases. Internal fiber-reinforced composite splinting being affordable for the patient, easy for the clinician to construct and giving good esthetic and functional results, suggests that the method may be a valuable aid in periodontal treatment.

5/52. prognosis of replanted primary incisors after injuries.

    Between 1979 and 1997, 58 avulsed primary teeth were treated at the Pedodontic Clinic of Niigata University Dental Hospital. Among these, we replanted six avulsed incisors of four patients and treated two teeth of two patients replanted at other dental clinics. Referring to the clinical records, oral photographs and radiographs, we examined the injury age, cause of injury, condition of tooth storage, length of time until replantation, and also the prognosis after replantation. Three teeth of two cases remained until eruption of their permanent successors, and one tooth of one case remained under observation without extraction. Although the other four teeth of three cases resulted in extraction, no secondary infection was detected due to replantation. The following reasons were suspected for the poor prognosis of the four teeth. One avulsed tooth was not fixed immediately after replantation. One replanted tooth might not have been compatible with the alveolar socket. In the other two teeth, the periodontal vital tissues might have been removed before replantation. It is generally suggested that replantation of primary teeth is not a good option. However, from the present results, it was considered that replantation can be an effectual method when the condition of the avulsed primary tooth is suitable.

6/52. Early tooth loss due to cyclic neutropenia: long-term follow-up of one patient.

    In young patients with abnormal loosening of teeth and periodontal breakdown, dental professionals should consider a wide range of etiological factors/diseases, analyze differential diagnoses, and make appropriate referrals. The long-term oral and dental follow-up of a female patient diagnosed in early infancy with cyclic neutropenia is reviewed, and recommendations for care are discussed.

7/52. Anaesthesia of the right lower hemilip as a first manifestation of multiple myeloma. Presentation of a clinical case.

    multiple myeloma is a malignant proliferation of plasma cells. It may affect any of various bones, causing osteolytic lesions with a characteristic "punched out" radiographic appearance. The commonest symptom is bone pain. One of the most frequent locations is the mandible. Symptoms of multiple myeloma of the mandible include tumefaction, non-specific pain, tooth mobility and sometimes loss, and paraesthesia of the dental nerve. Here we report a case of multiple myeloma of the mandible which was unusual in that the presenting complaint was anaesthesia of the right lower hemilip.

8/52. 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.

9/52. Generalized aggressive periodontitis in a prepubertal patient: a case report.

    A 10-year-old boy presented with generalized gingival inflammation, extensive alveolar bone loss, and tooth mobility. Clinical and radiographic examination supplemented by microbiologic investigation led to a diagnosis of classically termed prepubertal periodontitis (now known as generalized aggressive periodontitis). Other than severe periodontitis, the child was systemically healthy. Neither unusual infections nor abnormalities in neutrophil functions were detected. Microbiologic examinations by culture revealed the presence of the periodontal pathogen actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans. Treatment consisted of extraction of mobile teeth, supragingival and subgingival debridement, subgingival curettage, and root planing combined with a 1-week prescription of a combination of metronidazole and amoxicillin. Scanning electron microscopy of extracted teeth revealed hypoplastic and aplastic cementum at the periodontally exposed and intact surfaces. Clinical and microbiologic follow-up was continued over a 1-year period. No periodontal lesions have been detected, and A actinomycetemcomitans could not be isolated from the subgingival areas of the remaining teeth at the end of the first year. Since A actinomycetemcomitans was the main pathogen present in the subgingival microflora of the patient, it might play a key role in the etiology of prepubertal periodontitis.

10/52. immobilization of root-compromised maxillary anterior teeth: a case report with 14-year clinical follow-up.

    The efficacy of a modified cast-metal resin-bonded splint was evaluated after 14 years in service. The splint was used to immobilize the root-compromised maxillary central and lateral incisors of a teenage male following relapsed orthodontic treatment. The affected teeth were indirectly traumatized, before their eruption, in a bicycle accident that resulted in avulsion of their primary predecessors. The rationale for selecting this treatment modality rather than the alternatives is discussed. The clinical protocol employed during the treatment and subsequent follow-up is described.
