An esthetic appliance for the management of crown-root fracture: a case report.

Bottom Line: However, clinicians often encounter cases where the bonding required for tooth traction is not possible because the adjacent teeth have been restored with ceramic or veneer.The modified appliance was fabricated using an artificial tooth, clear plastic sheeting, and a braided fiber-reinforced composite strip that covered adjacent teeth without bonding.It satisfied the esthetic and functional needs of the patient and established the optimal biologic width.

ABSTRACT
Orthodontic extrusion is usually performed by means of a fixed orthodontic appliance that utilizes arch wire attached to adjacent teeth and transfers the desired force by elastic from the wire to the root. However, clinicians often encounter cases where the bonding required for tooth traction is not possible because the adjacent teeth have been restored with ceramic or veneer. The purpose of this case report is to describe a modified orthodontic extrusion appliance that is useful when conventional orthodontic treatment is not possible. The modified appliance was fabricated using an artificial tooth, clear plastic sheeting, and a braided fiber-reinforced composite strip that covered adjacent teeth without bonding. It satisfied the esthetic and functional needs of the patient and established the optimal biologic width.

Figure 1: Periapical radiograph of the left central incisor.

Mentions: A 20-year-old woman presented to the Department of Advanced General Dentistry, Yonsei University, with chronic gingival swelling and bleeding on the left central incisor. A periapical radiograph of the left central incisor showed the level of tooth structure was approximately equal to the osseous crest and so was insufficient for restoration without invasion of the biologic width (Figure 1). Orthodontic forced eruption followed by single ceramic restoration treatment was determined on the basis of esthetic and economic considerations.
