Trauma Splint Case #1
Displacement of an upper permanent tooth

The 13-year old male patient had an accident involving his bicycle and received a blow in the anterior region of his maxilla. The clinical examination showed displacement of his upper anterior tooth (21). Whilst radiographs indicated no bone- or dental fractures, substantial soft-tissue damage occurred.

After the tooth was re-positioned in the dental surgery, a trauma splint was bonded onto the labial surfaces of the upper anterior teeth. everStick® Ortho (Stick Tech Ltd) was bonded to the teeth using Xeno® III (Dentsply) and Tetric® Flow (Ivoclar Vivadent) as luting cement.
