Abstract

A long-term clinical control carried out on 34 patients subjected to surgery for the removal of included extra teeth at the Odontostomatological Clinic of the University of Turin is reported. The patients had mostly been treated at ages between 7 and 12 followed up between 4 and 8 years later. Long-term damage, from an orthodontic viewpoint also, is not frequent and when present is not of particular importance. The operation, carried out early and with correct technique, does not cause particular damage to teeth or adjacent bone or nerve structures and does not create psychological traumas for the young patient. It is therefore advisable for the surgical removal of extra included teeth which are causing damage to adjacent structures to be programmed as early as possible so as to permit maximum functional and aesthetic recovery and to minimise to the utmost the consequences of the operation.
