Surgical Treatment Options in Young Patients Where Traumatized Teeth Cannot be Preserved

5 (2 votes)

CE: 0

Description:The prognosis after traumatic dental injury is most often excellent. However, especially after intrusions and avulsions, an elevated risk of dento-alveolar ankylosis may be observed. Untreated, ankylotic teeth may end up in severe infraposition, compromising neighboring teeth and vertical growth of the alveolar process. Infection-related resorption may also lead to loss of previously traumatized teeth in growing individuals. Techniques to reduce horizontal and vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge will be presented and indications for each technique will be discussed. The techniques include: auto transplantation, decoronation, sandwich osteotomy with interpositional bone grafts, and socket preservation.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

- List dento-alveolar trauma with an elevated risk of healing complications.
- Describe clinical and radiographic signs of traumatized teeth that cannot be preserved.
- Name techniques to reduce horizontal and vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge.
