Title: Impacted post-traumatic maxillary central incisor: A multidisciplinary approach
Abstract: Aim The aim of this paper is to provide clinicians useful information for the management of impacted central incisor due to early childhood trauma.
Case report It is reported the case of an impacted right maxillary central incisor in an 8-year-old male patient who had an intrusive luxation trauma of primary tooth at the age of 4. After clinical and radiographic evaluation, a multidisciplinary treatment plan was planned. Therapy involved a surgical and orthodontic approach in order to expose the tooth and move the incisor in the normal position with a self-ligating appliance system.
Results Through a multidisciplinary approach it was possible to move the impacted incisor in the occlusal plane, preserving periodontal tissues and tooth vitality.
Conclusion When a permanent tooth is impacted, the multidisciplinary approach of surgery and orthodontic treatment is the best way to obtain a suitable outcome in terms of gingival contour, occlusal plane and aesthetics, when compared with other treatment options.
