Dr. Tsukiboshi is a graduate of Osaka University School of Dentistry in 1976. He earned a PhD in dental materials from Kyoto University in 1980 and has been engaged in private practice since 1981. Dr. Tsukiboshi's interest in dental traumatology and autotransplantation has led to extensive clinical involvement, course presentations and publications. Dr. Tsukiboshi has lectured extensively on dental trauma and autotransplantation; he has authored many articles and two textbooks, one on dental trauma in 1998 and one on autotransplantation in 2000. The books have been published in several languages, including English. Dr. Tsukiboshi is a visiting lecturer at Osaka University and Loma Linda University since 1998 and is the President of the International Association of Dental Traumatology in 2009 and 2010. Dr. Tsukiboshi is certified as an adjunctive assistant professor of Western university in USA in 2012 and a clinical professor of the dental school of Tohoku University from 2015-2018.
Treatment planning for traumatized teeth
Dental trauma is an acute disease involving the hard tissues, the pulp, and or the periodontium, and is more frequently seen in young people. Since infection is seldom associated with traumatized teeth, treatment options can be conservative. In other words, in dental trauma, pulpotomy is preferred over pulpectomy, simple composite restorations over complex prosthetics, and replantation over extraction.
The concept of "minimal intervention" should be upheld when treating traumatized teeth. In my presentation, participants will realize the beauty of natural dentition treated by the above concepts.
Autotransplantation of teeth
Complex treatment plans in implant often include situations where the choices of autotransplantation of teeth have been overlooked. If recipient sites are jeopardized for placing implants, more time, cost and techniques are required. However, if there is a good candidate as a donor tooth found in the same mouth, transplantation can be a more appropriate option than implant.
For example, the case where sinus lifting or ridge augmentation is indicated can be preferable and advantageous for autotransplantation. If patients are younger than twenty, implant is hardly indicated. The advantages over implant, indications and techniques for success will be discussed in this presentation. The lecture will be extensively illustrated with many clinical cases of autotransplantation of teeth and participants will realize the efficacy of transplant.
