RESTORATIVE OPTIONS IN THE POSTTRAUMATIC LUXATION OF ANTERIOR PERMANENT TEETH (Abstract): Tooth luxation, abnormal dislocation of the tooth within the socket caused by traumatic injury of the dentoalveolar ligament, has a prevalence ranging between 15% and 61%. The clinical manifestations are various and differ from patient to patient depending on the type of trauma but also on previous dental status. Of the 135 patients with posttraumatic luxation we report 2 cases which had a particular course requiring a certain type of restorative approach that allowed us to pinpoint some compulsory steps in the diagnosis and treatment. The patients were monitored with respect to pulp response and occurring complications, and the restorative options are discussed. The prosthetic treatment recommended in case of frontal teeth loss as a result of dentoalveolar trauma is represented by dental implants that support fixed dentures that resemble the missing teeth.
Key words: TOOTH LUXATION, DENTOALVEOLAR TRAUMA, PERMANENT ANTERIOR TEETH
