COMPLICATED CROWN FRACTURE TREATMENT AND ITS IMPACT ON QUALITY OF LIFE RELATED TO ORAL HEALTH: REPORT OF TWO CASES
Objective: The purpose of the study was to report the management of two complicated crown fractures and how the treatment of dental injuries influences Quality of Life related to Oral Health (QHRQoL). Case report: In the first case, endodontic therapy was performed because of pulp necrosis and complete rizogenesis. In the second case, pulpotomy was performed because of vital pulp and incomplete rizogenesis. Fragment bonding was carried out in both cases. QHRQoL was assessed before and a week after treatment. In case 1, scores varied from 32 to 9 in the CPQ11-14, from 42 to 12 in the P-CPQ, and from 24 to 4 in the FIS. In case 2, scores varied from 38 to 20 in the CPQ8-10, from 94 to 28 in the P-CPQ, and from 39 to 10 in the FIS. Fragment bonding is an efficient solution. Conclusion: Furthermore, trauma has an impact on children and their families, and a reduction of this impact is already observed a week after treatment.
