Multidisciplinary Approach for Replacement Root Resorption
Lima, Thiago Farias Rocha
Intrusive luxation is a severe trauma-related event with a high frequency of pulp necrosis and root resorption. A common complication following intrusion is tooth ankylosis, which can extend to progressive replacement root resorption. Decoronation is a new conservative treatment for cases of tooth ankylosis in young patients who have not finished growing. The purpose of this article is to report a multidisciplinary case of a young patient with anterior open bite, dental ankylosis, and tooth infraposition affected by intrusive luxation.
