This presentation will provide information on how to identify the proper type of transposition anomalies and establish an appropriate treatment plan for all possible situations.
Among dental anomalies, transposition is considered the most difficult to manage and represents a real challenge for the clinician.
Uncorrected, the results are often both functionally and aesthetically unsatisfactory.
Treatment of transposition varies from acceptance to correction and should take into account aspects such as age, dental morphology, malocclusion, facial aesthetics, stage of root development, position of root apices, and magnitude of the transposition.
Acceptance of the transposition is the predominating treatment strategy in case reports in the literature.
Indications, advantages and disadvantages of correction versus maintenance will be discussed.
Several cases of different types and combinations will be presented.
Finally the different treatment alternatives and their management will be clarified.
- Identifying the proper type of transposition anomaly with various dento-skeletal deformities associated to it
- Establishing a proper treatment plan for all possible situations
- Conducting the proper sequence in treatment of transposition anomalies
- Learn how to follow up the patient and being familiar with all possible complications
