Alternative treatment of over-erupted teeth

Cover Page

Abstract


Teeth not exposed to chewing forces have a capacity for physiological tooth movement or tooth migration. The erupting tooth will erupt until it reaches occlusal contact and the final positioning of the teeth depends on the equilibrium between forces e. g. forces from the occlusion, tongue, lips and eruption. Therefore, overeruption is accommodation process. There are several methods to treat the disease: the intrusion by means of orthodontics appliances, selective alveolar corticotomy for intruding overerupted teeth, prosthetic crowns, tooth extraction. Surgical or orthodontic therapy may be inconvenient and they are not always as effective as desired. Available prosthetic options for restoration of occlusion include selective root canal treatment with invasive tooth reduction to reconstruct the occlusal plane and make enough places for porcelain fused to metal crowns. The alternative treatment was proposed by department of prosthodontics of Peoples' Friendship University of Russia. The only destroyed tooth is restored by ceramo-composite pinlay, thus making no changes in occlusion line. The indications for this method: orthodontic therapy is not effective, no blockage of jaw motions, no pathologic changes in temporomandibular joints.
