The prevalence of dental injuries has been shown to occur in approximately 10-50% of children between the ages of 7 to 12 years world-wide. These injuries occur primarily in the anterior region of the mouth. Maintenance of the vital pulp and an intact periodontal ligament following trauma are critically important for these young patients as tooth loss can result in devastating and long-term clinical, social and psychological repercussions. The management and consequences of luxation injuries are multi-factorial, and knowledge of the inter-relating healing patterns of these tissues is essential. Ankylosis and replacement resorption are frequently diagnosed following avulsion and severe intrusive luxation. The treatment of ankylosed permanent incisors following dental trauma present a clinical challenge particularly when it involves a growing child due to the high risk of infra-position and under-development of the alveolar bone. New approaches for the treatment of ankylosed teeth, including decoronation
and bone augmentation for the preservation of alveolar ridge prior to permanent prosthetic reconstruction will be presented.
