MANAGEMENT OF ANTERIOR TOOTH FRACTURE
People losing tooth is quite natural. The etiology may be trauma, age, systemic health disorders, periodontal disease(infections affecting gums) and so on. So are the solutions of replacement too. Gone are the days when people used to adjust or survive with that missing teeth. Now we are in a generation were people are much conscious about beauty and health, no matter what.
1. Patient’s first visit to RDCH | 2. three days after extraction | 3. After placing Removable Partial Denture(RPD)
Here in RDCH we came across a patient who fractured his upper front teeth in an accident. As he had to travel out of station in a week’s time, he needed an immediate rehabilitation. We examined his mouth and found that his fractured teeth was mobile. Considering his urgency we planned to go for RPD(removable partial denture).
We first extracted(removed) the affected mobile teeth, advised him for three days antibiotic course and asked him to report after three days. On the third we found that the extraction site was healed completely, thus recorded the impression of his upper and lower arch, out of which we fabricated a RPD and delivered it on the same evening. Patient was very pleased with his new teeth.
