Dentoalveolar Trauma - Tooth luxation with displacement - Extrusion

Aftercare following treatment of extrusion

Aftercare may include endodontic treatment. The decision for endodontic treatment may be taken after 2 to 6 months of follow-up if the tooth still does not respond to electrometric or thermal pulp testing and/or if x-rays show a periapical radiolucency or the crown becomes discolored.

Patients are encouraged to restrict themselves to a semi-solid diet and avoid clenching and any other traumatic overload to the traumatized tooth for a period of 1 or 2 weeks posttrauma.

Further treatment
Further dental treatment may be completed as an elective procedure in a dental office, for example management of discoloration, cosmetic correction, porcelain restoration, etc.
