Dental Trauma: An Overview of Its Influence on the Management of Orthodontic Treatment. Part 1

Publication Summary

This is the first of two papers discussing the implications of dental trauma for patients requiring orthodontic treatment. This paper will focus on the factors the orthodontic specialist should consider when contemplating movement of traumatized teeth. The prevalence of dental trauma and the recognition and prevention of traumatic injuries are discussed. The evidence available in the literature relating to orthodontic tooth movement in vital and endodontically treated traumatized teeth is explored. The interdisciplinary management of root fractured and intruded teeth receive special attention. The second paper will look at the role of the specialist team in the management of failing anterior teeth and will outline possible treatment options for children and adolescents encountering such situations. Avulsion injuries and tooth transplantation are considered in particular detail.
