Share Abstract:

The use of an orthodontic thermoplastic retainer as a provisional anterior restoration: A case report


Pages: 123-126
PMID: 9643247

Children who present with extensive fractures of anterior teeth pose a difficult clinical problem. Pulpal and periodontal injuries must be carefully assessed and managed. Rapid restoration of the form and contour of the extensively fractured tooth is advisable, not only to improve esthetics but also to prevent unwanted tipping or tilting of adjacent teeth and overeruption of opposing teeth. A modified Essix retainer, simply constructed in the laboratory, can be used to provisionally restore the extensively fractured anterior tooth.
