NON SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF THE ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES OF TRAUMATIZED PERMANENT TEETH

Traumatic dental injuries of permanent teeth are associated with several short and long term consequences. Though we have guidelines for management of acute tooth injuries, the management of the adverse consequences still lacks uniformity. These adverse responses include external root resorption, bone resorption, peri apical pathologies, cystic lesions, ankylosis and cervical resorptions. The traumatized teeth which develop such response are either deemed as having poor prognosis or managed by surgical procedures. This lecture highlights the steps of recognition of the adverse consequences and their management through the basic principles of regenerative medicine.
