Dent Traumatol. 2009 Oct;25(5):522-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1600-9657.2009.00794.x. Epub 2009 Jun 1.


Primary teeth injuries may cause developmental disturbances in the permanent dentition and loss of permanent incisors could be treated with different options. In this case report, an 11-year-old boy, with a history of trauma at the age of 4 years, is presented. Premature loss of permanent upper right central and upper left central teeth because of the mobility and arrest in root development were treated using patient's own natural crowns on a removable appliance. This treatment option could be considered as an esthetic and functional temporary management of permanent central incisors loss until the definitive treatment will be completed in the future.
