1/25. Bone-like tissue growth in the root canal of immature permanent teeth after traumatic injuries.

    Following a severe traumatic incident to permanent immature teeth, the growth of calcified tissue in the pulp space may occasionally occur. This calcified tissue may be diffuse or in intimate contact with the dentine. It has been suggested that a wide open apex, severe damage to the root sheath, and the absence of infection are only some of the predisposing factors leading to this metaplasia of pulp tissue into bone-like tissue. Five cases are described. ( info)

2/25. Direct pulp capping with a dentin adhesive resin system in children's permanent teeth after traumatic injuries: case reports.

    Traumatic injuries in the permanent teeth of children and adolescents are one of the most frequent causes of dental treatment. The article presents the use of an enamel and dentin adhesive resin system, Syntac, and resin composite materials, Tetric and Variolink, as materials of choice for direct pulp capping after traumatic pulpal exposure (Ellis Class III). Exposed pulp in 10 patients was covered with Syntac and then Tetric and Variolink after etching of dental tissues with phosphoric acid. The follow-up period was from 12 to 48 months. In 1 patient, the treatment was a failure. In the remaining 9 patients, no signs or symptoms of pulpal inflammation or necrosis were observed during the clinical examination. ( info)

3/25. Vital pulp therapy with bipolar electrocoagulation after intentional pulp exposure of fixed prosthodontic abutments: a clinical report.

    A clinical protocol is described for the treatment of intentional and unavoidable exposed pulps during crown preparation. The protocol includes a definitive cavity preparation to create space in the exposed dentin for an adhesive pulp barrier; procedures to develop the highly desirable hybrid zone to prevent microleakage; the use of a specific resinous material that serves as a long-term pulp barrier with a relatively neutral and biocompatible impact on the pulp; and the use of precise bipolar electrocoagulation to provide durable hemostasis for restoration of the pulp wall and a relatively clot-free surgical wound to facilitate healing. The protocol involves the application of gentle surgical and restorative procedures to support the inherent healing process to restore the health of the pulp. The patient presented was part of a larger investigation and was selected in an attempt to identify a fixed prosthodontic application of the proposed pulp therapy protocol. ( info)

4/25. Reattachment of a fractured maxillary incisor crown--case report.

    Management of traumatic injuries to the teeth is a challenge to the practising dentist. It has no prescriptive method for occurring, possesses no significant predictable pattern of intensity or extensiveness and occurring at times when dentists are least prepared for it. It may not only leave physical scars but also a psychological impact on its victim. Yet, more than half of all children traumatize either their primary or permanent teeth before leaving the school, coupled with the dynamic panorama of sporting activity worldwide and the significant increase in violence among the populations. tooth trauma and its management loom as a major challenge to the dental practitioner. A case of a 11 year old boy with Ellis Class 3 traumatic injury to the maxillary left central incisor is reported. A pulpectomy was performed followed by reinforcement and reattachment of the crown fragment and restoration with composite resin. ( info)

5/25. Cvek pulpotomy: report of a case with five-year follow-up.

    Partial pulpotomy (Cvek pulpotomy) is the treatment of choice for injured permanent incisor teeth with exposed vital pulp tissue and immature apices. This treatment preserves pulpal function, thus allowing continued root development. The present report describes the case of a permanent incisor with incomplete root end closure that underwent a Cvek pulpotomy, with subsequent apical closure. Five years post pulp therapy, the tooth remained symptom free. ( info)

6/25. Restorative management of the worn dentition: 3. Localized posterior toothwear.

    In the management of localized posterior occlusal toothwear, care must be taken not only in determining whether the worn teeth are restorable, but also the desirable occlusal scheme. Assessments of the periodontal, endodontic, and coronal tooth tissues, and the occlusal relationship are necessary for a comprehensive treatment plan for worn posterior teeth. ( info)

7/25. tooth fragment reattachment: fundamentals of the technique and two case reports.

    Coronal fractures must be approached in a methodical and clinically indicated way to achieve successful restoration. One option for treatment is reattachment of the dental fragment. Reattachment creates a very positive emotional response in the patient and simplifies the maintenance of the patient's original occlusion. This article discusses dental fragment reattachment techniques and presents clinical cases of coronal fracture involving enamel, dentin, and pulpal exposure. ( info)

8/25. Adhesive reattachment of a tooth fragment: the biological restoration.

    Recent developments in restorative materials, placement techniques, preparation design, and adhesive protocols allow clinicians to predictably restore fractured teeth. Using a minimally invasive approach, treatment of the maxillary anterior region can be effortlessly completed within a single appointment. If the original tooth fragment is retained following fracture, the natural tooth structures can be reattached using adhesive protocols to ensure reliable strength, durability, and aesthetics. This article discusses the adhesive reattachment of a tooth fragment to a fractured incisor using a conservative preparation technique. ( info)

9/25. Congenital defect of maxillary primary central incisor associated with exposed pulp and gingival [fibrosis]: case report.

    This report describes a rare case of hypoplastic primary incisor in which the pulp was exposed at the crown portion and covered by the gingiva in a 1-year-11-month-old boy. The patient was referred to us due to swelling of his labial cervical gingiva of the maxillary right primary central incisor, and on examination, extended to the hypoplastic labial surface. Radiographically, there was a round radiolucent area on the crown including the edge. Surgical removal of the swollen gingiva revealed a large defect of the labial aspect of the incisor, showing pulpal tissue inside. The tooth was treated by vital pulpotomy. Histopathologically, the removed gingival tissue contained many pieces of dysplastic tooth elements in the lamina propria portion which should have been connected to the exposed pulp. The findings suggested that pulp exposure resulted from focal dental hypoplasia not from resorption of the tooth. ( info)

10/25. Partial pulpotomy and tooth reconstruction of a crown-fractured permanent incisor: a case report.

    Pulp exposure due to traumatic injuries in the anterior permanent teeth of adolescents is a common occurrence. A vital permanent maxillary incisor with complex crown fracture and pulp exposure was treated by partial pulpotomy and assessed clinically through pulpal sensitivity tests and radiographically for periapical healing. Partial pulpotomy consisted of pulp tissue removal to a depth of only 1 to 2 mm, then capping the pulpal wound with calcium hydroxide, lining with resin-modified glass-ionomer cement, and restoration with resin composite. At each recall (7, 15, 21, 50, 90, 150, and 250 days), no spontaneous pain was observed; the pulp showed signs of vitality and absence of periapical radiolucency after 90 days. For long-term success, partial pulpotomy is recommended as an option for cases of traumatic pulp exposure in permanent incisors with crown fractures. ( info)
