Dental Trauma and Ankylosis

Traumatic injuries to teeth are a prevalent issue in childhood and early adolescence. While the prognosis for most of these injured teeth is good, avulsed and intruded teeth have elevated risk of ankylosis and need for eventual tooth replacement.

Early diagnosis of ankylosis and subsequent treatment planning are essential to optimize outcomes. A number of temporary management options are available to allow young patients to reach an age where implant treatment can be considered. This Learning Pathway will discuss trauma and the management of ankylosed teeth. The Pathway is based on a lecture from Simon Storgård Jensen and is supported by a Consensus Statement and two clinical cases.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to…

  • identify the situations where traumatized teeth may need to be replaced
  • describe the options for managing ankylosed teeth
  • identify the specific issues that relate to implant replacements of ankylosed teeth
