Abstract

The purpose of this case report was to elucidate the condition after tooth injury while drilling and orthodontic microimplant fracture caused by its incorrect positioning. Among the investigation methods were CT, pulp vitality test,and endo-ice. That case clearly demonstrates and supports opinion of other authors that injury of periodontium and tissues of the root while drilling and placement of the microimplants can cause no significant disturbances in the future. Even in case of drilling in close proximity to root canals.
