Subject: [roots] Avulsion and luxation

This patient sustained an avulsion of 21 and a luxation of 11 
two years prior to the consultation. 21 was stored in milk and 
replanted 10 minutes after the trauma. He presented with a 
double sinus tract and a  significant resorption defect on 21. 
He wanted to save the tooth, in spite of the doubtful prognosis.
I placed Ca(OH2 for 1 month, and then an apical plug of MTA. 
Composite directly on top of the MTA in a subsequent visit. 
Sinus tracts disappeared, and today he returned for a 9 months 
follow-up. It seems that healing is taking place, the lesion 
has diminished in size significantly. I discussed the option of
extrusion of 21 with the referring dentist, in order to gain 
some gingiva and create a symmetrical appearance of both central 
incisors. Most likely 21 has to be restored with a veneer, in order to
rehabilitate the clinical crown shape after the extrusion - Marga
