Urazy zębów – przegląd wytycznych postępowania na podstawie piśmiennictwa oraz opisu przypadków
Dental injuries occur frequently in children and teenagers. Based on a long-term research, 25% of all school children and 33% of adults have experienced trauma to permanent dentition. Correct diagnosis and treatment is of great importance. Guidelines, originally published in 2007 by the International Association of Dental Traumatology (IADT) were updated in 2012.
This article describes a case of a 11 year old girl, injured while bike riding. The patient suffered an enamel-dentin fracture of teeth 21 and 11 without exposing the pulp. The treatment included reconstruction of tooth 11 using composite material and tooth 21 with the use of a crown fragment brought by the patient. Subsequently, a case of a 10 year old boy is described, who suffered an enamel-dentin-pulp fracture of tooth 21 with the exposure of the pulp and a concussion of tooth 11. Reconstruction was carried out with the use of a fiberglass inset and the crown fragment brought by the patient.
These guidelines should assist dentists in decision making and help in delivering appropriate care.
