Adjunctive orthodontics, a powerful tool.
Patient presented with tooth #8 with crown off with core of the tooth fractured and retained within the crown. Option of tooth replacement with implant supported crown was discussed. Existing root anatomy was evaluated and its width and length was analyzed. Decision was made to utilize orthodontic forced eruption followed by pre prosthetic crown lengthening to salvage the tooth. Interdisciplinary treatment concept reported by Jeffrey Ingber, among many others enabled the tooth to be saved and restored to its proper form and function.
