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 he just gave away the distal part of his
crown. No perio involvement, sensitivity to cold was normal, no mobility, no root fraktur. 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 metall 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.
