Summary of "Management of complicated crown-root fractures using intentional replantation: two case reports."

Abstract -  The management of complicated crown-root fractures is a challenge. Intentional replantation with 180° rotation may be a useful procedure to overcome this problem. In Case 1, a 23-year-old woman with complicated crown-root fractured teeth #11, #21, and #22 was referred for treatment. All fractured teeth were extracted, rotated 180°, and replanted in a slightly extruded position. After 3 months, root canal treatment was completed and the final restorations fabricated. At the 18-month follow up, the patient was asymptomatic, the tooth was functional, and no root resorption was observed radiographically. At the 90-month follow up, slight cervical root resorption of tooth #11 was noted. In Case 2, a 27-year-old woman with a crown-root fractured tooth #21 was referred for treatment. Despite immediate repositioning of the coronal fragment and a 2-week stabilization with a wire splint, the coronal fragment remained separated from the apical tooth segment. The apical segment was extracted, rotated 180°, and replanted in a slightly extruded position. After 1 and 4 weeks, the root canal treatment was completed and the final restoration fabricated, respectively. At the 24-month follow up, the patient was asymptomatic and apical healing was completed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The constricted part of the tooth at the junction of the crown and root or roots. It is often referred to as the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), the line at which the cementum covering the root of a tooth and the enamel of the tooth meet. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p530, p433)

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.

The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Use of a metal casting, usually with a post in the pulp or root canal, designed to support and retain an artificial crown.
