Abstract


The  incidence  of  trauma  to  the  anterior  teeth  is  a  common  occurrence  in  children.  From  the  very  moment  the  child  tries  to  walk  erect  independently,  the  susceptibility  of  the  child’s  anterior  teeth  getting  injured  begins.  Avulsion  (a  type  of  traumatic  injury)  is  the  complete  loss  of  the  tooth  from  its  socket. Various  treatment  modalities  are  available  to  treat  such  accidents.  The  tooth  can  be  replanted  back  or  replaced  by  a  prosthesis, it  depends  upon  the  extraoral  drytime  and  the  stage  of  development  of  root  of  the  avulsed  tooth.  The  present  case-report  describes  the  way  in  which  an  avulsed  permanent  maxillary  central  incisor  of  a  12  year  old  boy   was   replaced  aesthetically, and  satisfactorily  after  1  month  of  avulsion  by  means  of  a  biological  fixed  functional  prosthesis  ( a  modified   “Hollywood Bridge” )  where  the  crown  of  the  avulsed  tooth  was  used  as  a  pontic  and  stainless  steel  wires  and  bands  were  used  to  fix  the  prosthesis  in  the  mouth as  an  interim  treatment  option.
