1/104. replantation of avulsed teeth: considerations and complications.

    Avulsion of teeth is a traumatic dental injury which can be managed by replantation. Important considerations for successful replantations are highlighted. Several sequelae to replantation are discussed in relation to the clinical features observed in a patient seen 6 years after replantation of two avulsed upper incisors. Many of these complications might have been avoided if the patient had returned to the clinic for root canal therapy shortly after the teeth was replanted.

2/104. replantation of avulsed central incisor with advanced periodontal disease: a case report.

    This paper describes the case of a 31-year-old woman with advanced periodontal disease who lost a tooth due to trauma. The avulsed tooth had minimal bony support of only 4-5 mm. The patient described was under good periodontal maintenance. The tooth was kept moist, and replantation occurred within an hour of avulsion. The tooth was returned to its position, splinted, and later endodontically treated. After 2 years the tooth appears and functions normally as it did before avulsion.

3/104. Management of an avulsed primary incisor.

    The case describes the management of an avulsed maxillary central primary incisor of a 3 1/2-year-old girl. The tooth was retained in the oral cavity for 30 min. After replantation it was splinted for 17 days. At day 11 the root canal was completely instrumented and obturated with a calcium hydroxide paste. The 1-year follow-up documented no pathologic clinical or radiographic findings. One and a half years after the trauma the tooth was extracted since a fistula and extensive external inflammatory resorption had developed. The permanent successor erupted along with its neighboring central incisor without any complications 6 months later. Conventional approaches for treating avulsed permanent teeth could also be applied to avulsed primary incisors to preserve them for a certain period without the additional risk of damaging their developing permanent successors.

4/104. Contemporary treatment of the resorbed avulsed tooth: a case report.

    This report describes the treatment sequence after traumatic loss of a maxillary central incisor in a 15-year-old patient. Following extraoral root canal treatment and initially successful replantation, the case presented 9 years later with complete root resorption. After augmentation with an autologous mandibular corticocancellous graft, a dental implant was placed in a second stage surgery. The case highlights the challenge facing clinicians in providing the appropriate standard of care for today's treatment options.

5/104. Complete intrusion of a maxillary right primary central incisor.

    This clinical article presents a rare presentation of complete intrusion of a maxillary right primary central incisor. Routine examination of a 29-month old female patient revealed an intrusion injury where the primary central incisor was displaced through the floor of the nasal cavity. The traumatic impaction was erroneously diagnosed as an avulsion injury by the attending emergency room physician and later discovered by the dental team during routine care. The injury was documented with radiographs. The intruded incisor was removed through the right naris utilizing general anesthesia to manage behavior and surgical access. This article emphasizes the importance of radiographs and demonstrates the need to involve the dental professional in initial assessment of dental trauma.

6/104. Bilateral pulmonary aspiration of intact teeth following maxillofacial trauma.

    tooth aspiration is one of the rare sequelae of dental trauma. When this does occur, the right bronchus is usually involved in adults due to the anatomical configuration. In this unusual case, two teeth were aspirated with one entering each lung. While the outcome from cases of aspiration of foreign bodies is usually favourable, this case serves to illustrate one of the possible unfavourable consequences.

7/104. A multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of an intruded maxillary permanent incisor complicated by the presence of two mesiodentes.

    Treatment of a traumatically intruded maxillary incisor with an immature apex remains controversial. Treatment options include observation, surgical repositioning, or orthodontic forced eruption. Likewise, the ideal timing of surgical removal of a mesiodens is highly controversial: immediate versus delayed intervention. The complications associated with untreated supernumerary teeth include: overretention of primary teeth, delayed eruption of permanent incisors, rotations, impaction, diastema, pulp necrosis and root resorption. Less common sequelae include enlarged follicular sacs, cystic degeneration and nasal eruption. This paper describes another risk factor associated with delayed removal of a mesiodens previously not mentioned in the dental literature, namely potential complications arising from a traumatic injury, in particular intrusion, of the maxillary permanent incisors.

8/104. Bonded arch bars to manage traumatic injuries to the teeth and alveolar bone.

    A simple, rapid, painless, and bloodless method of successfully treating avulsed and partially avulsed teeth with or without associated dentoalveolar fractures is presented for management by the general practitioner in the office. It is a bonding technique with the key elements being a prefabricated malleable mesh backed arch bar in combination with any light curing composite procedure that is standard in the individual's office.

9/104. 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.

10/104. Avulsion of posterior primary teeth and space maintaining appliance: case report.

    A four-year-old child was presented to the pediatric dentistry Clinic of the Federal University, 21 days after an incident in which canine first and second primary molar teeth were avulsed, due to a trauma to the face. This was confirmed on radiological examination. The clinical examinations showed that tissues were normal. A removable space-maintaining dental-mucosa supported appliance was made in acrylic resin to replace the three missing teeth. After a period of eight months, the tissues were preserved, the device is helping the child to eat, to speak, and preserving the appearance of the patient. Radiograph examinations have shown that the first molar tooth and canine, first pre molar and second pre molar teeth are erupting normally. Trauma in primary dentition can cause psychological, morphological and functional problems. In the presented case the treatment was planned to recuperate the function and to avoid problems from the premature loss of primary teeth.
