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 2: Subgingival fractured left central incisor and inflamed condition of gingiva.

Mentions: After careful bridge cutting and removal of the crown on the left central incisor (Figure 2), periodontal treatment was performed. A temporary crown with a post was set after the condition of the previous root canal treatment was evaluated by an endodontist. However, considering the adjacent ceramic crowns, conventional methods of forced eruption had an increased risk of ceramic damage. A modified appliance needed to be fabricated.
