ABSTRACT

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to determine condition of the teeth, which are located in the fracture gap of different parts of mandible and substantiate an indications for their removing or retaining.

 

Material and Methods: 114 patients with 186 fractures were involved in this research.

 

Results: 50% or more cases of post-traumatic inflammatory complications were observed in case of contact failure of the teeth roots, that are in a gap of fracture, with the periodontium of these teeth al 1/2 or more of their length. Saving teeth in fracture gap, which have failure of contact with the surrounding periodontium 1/2 and 3/4 the length of the root causes high risk of inflammatory complications in bone and surrounding soft tissues.

 

Conclusions: Based on the specified condition of teeth in the fracture gap different areas of the mandible justified indication for removal or preservation.
