GARCIA VITAR, Lourdes; LEY SIFONTES, Luís; SILVA MARTINEZ, Yordana  and  LOPEZ MENDOZA, Edivia. Immediate prosthetic rehabilitation because of failure of a dental reimplantation: a case presentation. AMC [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.5, pp. 545-555. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: dental avulsion is the complete loss of a tooth from its alveolus; the best treatment for a child is the reimplantation of the own tooth but the therapeutics presents great challenges for the professionals that depend on many factors. Objective: to demonstrate that the rehabilitation by means of immediate prosthesis is an alternative to the failure of a dental reimplantation. Clinical case: a twelve-year-old male patient that came with his father to the stomatological consultation of prosthesis of the policlinic for veterans of the medical service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Camagüey. Two and a half years ago, the patient underwent the reimplantation of the right anterosuperior tooth after receiving a blow to the head that caused the loss from the alveolus; then, the patient presented signs and symptoms characteristic of an unfavourable progress. Conclusions: the existence of an advanced inflammatory radicular reabsorption was confirmed, associated to other factors like: a prolonged extraoral time of the reimplanted tooth, a deficient conservation medium, inadequate type and time of splinting and the torpid endodontic handling. The immediate prosthetic rehabilitation was the suitable treatment to re-establish the psychic, aesthetic, and functional parameters required by the patient.
