Trauma to primary dentition usually presents with problems in the permanent dentition which are difficult to treat. This case report describes the treatment of a 23-year-old adult female patient with crown dilaceration and discoloration of maxillary right central incisor. Therapeutic management of this tooth was combined with orthodontic treatment for proclination due to associated dilaceration of crown. A. sequential approach of endodontic treatment followed by orthodontic treatment was carried out. The tooth was later treated with a fiber post, and ceramic facing crown was delivered. To produce esthetic results, discoloration of maxillary left central incisor was treated with the composite restoration. CLINICAL RELEVANCE TO INTERDISCIPLINARY DENTISTRY
  • The article “gEndodontic and Orthodontic Interdisciplinary Management of a Patient with Turner'fs Hypoplasia”h is a case report of a young 23-year-old girl who was seeking dental help for her unesthetic upper incisors
  • The proclination due to an unusual crown angulation could not be corrected by prosthetic treatment alone and required help from an orthodontist. Once the proclination along with crowding was corrected, the esthetics could be improved
  • Also the patient had focal hypoplastic lesions with brownish discoloration and root reinforcement was required. Thus, a fiber post was luted
  • The esthetic look was, however, enhanced with a prosthetic treatment of a metal ceramic crown.
