Polat HB, Ay S, Kara MI - Eur J Dent (2007)

Bottom Line: Maxillary tuberosity fractures during molar teeth extraction can occur commonly in dental practice; however, very few cases are reported and discussed in the literature.This article presents a case of large fracture of maxillary tuberosity during extraction of first maxillary molar tooth and its conservative treatment outcomes.

f2-0010256: Panoramic radiograph shows large fracture of right maxillary tuberosity.

Mentions: In dental examination; the maxillary right first, second and third molars were elevated and mobile, so the patient was unable to close his mouth (Figure 1). An oroantral communication and bleeding from right nostril were present. Of interest was that no caries was observed on right first molar. Based on detailed anamnesis, GDP’s indication of extraction was guessed only from the sensitivity of the right first molar or misdiagnosing of any referral pain. The intraoral and radiographic examination revealed a maxillary right tuberosity fracture including three molar teeth (Figure 2). The patient also stated that while the GDP was extracting the tooth, he had used the forceps with his both hands without supporting the alveolar bone segment.
