1/31. Unusual fracture of a mandibular second premolar: a case report.

    Root fractures of posterior teeth, which are defined as fractures involving cementum, dentin, and pulp, are relatively uncommon among dental traumas. This study describes an unusual horizontal fracture of a mandibular second premolar. The tooth was asymptomatic and the fracture unnoticed until the crown broke off completely. The patient had no recollection of a causative event nor was there any evidence of previous physical trauma. The tooth was extracted, embedded in resin, sliced, and examined with different light microscopes. It was concluded that the tooth had been damaged previously but not to the extent that the pulp was seriously damaged. Resorption over a period of time eventually caused the final fracture.

2/31. transplantation of a lower bicuspid after traumatic loss of three upper incisors.

    BACKGROUND: Prosthodontic and orthodontic procedures have been described for the treatment of patients with traumatic loss of teeth. PATIENT AND methods: Both upper central incisors and the upper right lateral incisor had to be extracted in an 8-year-old patient after failure of conservative procedures following a sports accident. The patient was treated on a temporary basis with a space retainer as a substitute for the teeth. Definitive therapy was carried out by transplanting a lower bicuspid germ into the upper arch with subsequent orthodontic gap closure. RESULTS: 8 years after the intervention, the transplanted tooth is still in place. The patient is fully rehabilitated both functionally and esthetically with no discomfort. CONCLUSIONS: The transplantation of bicuspid germs in conjunction with orthodontic gap closure is a valuable alternative to prosthodontic treatment, particularly in the case of loss or aplasia of several teeth.

3/31. Aneurysmal bone cyst of the maxilla--an association with tooth resorption.

    The aneurysmal bone cyst is an uncommon lesion of the jaws. Cases involving the maxilla have been reported infrequently. Despite uncertainty as to the aetiology of the aneurysmal bone cyst, it is regarded as a benign lesion. Conservative surgical treatment with regular postoperative follow-up is recommended. The case described here presented with tooth mobility resulting from extensive root resorption. A review of the literature reveals that significant root resorption is not a commonly reported feature of aneurysmal bone cysts. For the present case we interpret the evidence as supporting a diagnosis of idiopathic root resorption complicated by the formation of a aneurysmal bone cyst.

4/31. Histopathology of the teeth in segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia: new findings.

    Histological examination of the deciduous teeth in two cases of segmental odontomaxillary dysplasia (SOMD) showed fibrous enlargement of the pulps, an irregular pulp/dentine interface displaying many pseudoinclusions and pulp stones. There were tubular defects in the coronal dentine from pulp horn to cusp tip, an irregular tubular structure to the circumpulpal dentine of the apical half, a focally deficient odontoblast layer and widespread external resorption. Together with the clinical features of unilateral maxillary enlargement, upper alveolar expansion in the distal segment, increased spacing and delayed eruption of the deciduous molars and absence of premolar teeth, these histological appearances allow distinction of this condition from fibrous dysplasia (FD), segmental hemifacial hypertrophy (SHH) and regional odontodysplasia (ROD).

5/31. Severe incisor resorption by impacted maxillary canines: case report and literature review.

    This paper reviews the literature relating to incisor resorption caused by impacted maxillary canines, and describes the presentation and management of a patient with unusually severe early resorption. This case highlights the need for careful monitoring of maxillary canine eruption for all paediatric patients.

6/31. Pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucent defect: a case of a nonprogressive lesion.

    Pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption or defect is an unusual radiolucency located in the dentin, just beneath the dentin-enamel junction of unerupted teeth. The pathogenesis of the phenomenon is unclear. The present case with a radiolucency that has not changed in its dimension over a period of almost 7 years, until tooth eruption, raises a question about the progressive nature of the defect that is defined as "resorption." Resorption may not be the sole explanation for a pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucent defect. The authors also challenge the hypothesis of "local pressure" as a prime cause for the defect. The authors conclude that, when dealing with pre-eruptive intracoronal radiolucency in permanent teeth, a conservative approach with radiographic follow-up is the recommended treatment if the lesion does not seem to endanger the pulp. Intervention can be postponed until after tooth eruption when treatment does not require surgical intervention.

7/31. Radiolucent lesion of an unerupted mandibular molar.

    A coronal radiolucent lesion of an unerupted and partially developed mandibular second molar was coincidentally found during a routine radiographic orthodontic examination of a generally healthy 9-year old girl. The size of the lesion increased continuously during a 2-year observation period. Histologic examination after extracting the tooth proved the lesion to be an idiopathic external coronal resorption. In a review of the literature, we found no original research on the subject. However, the number of case reports suggests that idiopathic external coronal resorptions are quite common in young patients. Their etiology, however, remains unclear. The case history, histologic findings, differential diagnoses, and possible treatment approaches suggested in the literature are described.

8/31. Treatment of severe pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption of a permanent second molar.

    Pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption is a lesion often located within the dentin, adjacent to the dentin-enamel junction, in the occlusal aspect of the crown. As the lesions resemble caries, they are often referred as "pre-eruptive caries." The purpose of this case report was to describe the diagnosis and treatment of a permanent molar with pre-eruptive intracoronal resorption and to elaborate on possible associated clinical problems. After surgical exposure of the unerupted tooth, the tooth structure in the resorbed area was removed and the tooth was restored with glass-ionomer material. Three months after the treatment, partial pulpotomy had been performed and the restoration was replaced by amalgam. Elaboration on possible associated clinical problems is provided.

9/31. External invasive resorption in a three-rooted lower first molar.

    Several pathoses can be present concurrently in one tooth, and if that tooth has an unusual anatomical variation, the diagnosis and treatment can be further complicated. This case stresses the importance of accurate assessment and diagnosis prior to intervention and their role in identifying cases for referral to a specialist in today's increasingly litigious environment.

10/31. Resorption of the crown of an unerupted permanent molar.

    This case report describes an unusual phenomenon where resorption occurred in the crown of an unerupted permanent molar. It was an incidental radiological finding. After eruption the tooth was extracted. Histological examination revealed resorption of enamel and dentine, and partial replacement by calcific material. The possible aetiology of the condition is discussed.
