Orthodontic extrusion with magnets: A case report
Mehl, Christian / Wolfart, Stefan / Kern, Matthias
Subgingival crown-root fractures often present clinical problems when a restorative coverage of the fracture line conflicts with the biological width. Accepted treatment options include the extrusion of the remaining root with a conventional orthodontic appliance, surgical crown lengthening of the root, or root extraction with prosthetic tooth replacement. After considering esthetics and function, orthodontic extrusion with magnets might also be a viable alternative. In this report, a simplified method of orthodontic extrusion with magnets is presented.
