Abstract
A 7-year-old male was refered to Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Wonkwang Dental Hospital for treatment of a traumatic injury to the teeth of the maxillary anterior region of the mouth. His right central incisor presented subluxation and root fracture, the left central incisor had suffered intrusive luxation and root fracture. The initial treatment involved reposition and fixation of the teeth with 0.5mm stainless steel wire and composite resin. The patient was submitted for clinical and radiographic fallow-up. After 4 years, radiographically the right central incisor seemed to be healed by hard tissue union and showed to be indistinct fracture line, intact lamina dura. The left central incisor radiographically was healed by interposition of bone and connective tissue and showed to be distinct horizontal fracture line separating the fragments, and pulp canal obliteration. In clinical examination, the teeth showed a normal response to elective pulp test, percussion and mobility test. Pulp survival after injuries appears to be dependent upon the type of luxation injury, age of patient, stage of root development and degree of dislocation. In this case, the two teeth with incomplete root formation were suffered different type of injury by trauma and has showed different healing aspect.
Key Words: Incomplete root formation, Intrusion, Root fracture
