Session Description:

Replacement resorption and ankylosis are frequently diagnosed following avulsion and severe intrusive luxation. The treatment of ankylosed permanent incisors following dental trauma present a clinical challenge particularly when involve a growing child due to the high risk of infraposition and undevelopment of the alveolar bone. New approaches for the treatment of ankylosed teeth, including decoronation and bone augmentation for the preservation of alveolar ridge prior to the implant-based prosthetic reconstruction will be thoroughly discussed and illustrated.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

  • Discuss dentoalveolar traumatic injuries and their complications in growing patients.
  • Recognize effective strategies for the preservation and augmentation of the alveolar ridge for final prosthetic rehabilitation.
  • Develop a comprehensive approach for the treatment of ankylosed teeth.
