Feature Article
Ankylosis may occur after traumatic dental injuries and especially after luxation-type injuries. Ankylosis may progress slowly or fast but will eventually lead to loss of the tooth. In growing individuals, ankylosis leads to infraposition of the affected tooth. For the same reason, implant treatment is not recommended before alveolar growth has terminated to avoid implant infraposition.

Bone grafting materials are categorized according to their origin as autogenous, allogenic, xenogenic or alloplastic. Each group of materials shares common features. However, within the groups different handling and processing techniques may lead to significant differences in biologic behavior.
