Subject: [roots] Lucky girl
This young girl ( 9 y) has been real lucky. She hit an iron post at the
playground of her school. This tooth has been lucky too. Instead of getting
avulsed she just gave away the distal part of her crown. No perio involvement,
sensitivity to cold was normal, no mobility, no root fracture. pulp was not exposed.
When her mother called, I was standing next to my assistant and told her to tell
the patients mother, to have a look for possible fragments. They went back to the
playground and found the palatinal part! You can see the metal impact mark on the
tooth. I bonded the distal part with a flowable composite and
then "filled" the gap. Will see here for sensitivity testing - Jörg Schröder
