Trauma from occlusion (TFO) results from injury to periodontal tissue arising from occlusal forces that exceed the adaptive capacity of the ligaments. One of the clinical signs of TFO is tooth mobility. There is a variety of possible treatments for TFO, one of which is coronoplasty. The objective of this study is to evaluate tooth movement after coronoplasty. Case 1: a 51-year-old woman had generalized chronic periodontitis, while her 47 had suffered trauma from occlusion as a result of the roots of the tooth being fused. The tooth had 2° of mobility. Case 2: a 56-year-old woman was suffering from aggressive periodontitis affecting her 36, and her 38 had trauma from occlusion because the 38 had a small root and the 36 had an unfavorable crown-to-root ratio. The 36 and 38 each had 2° of mobility. Case 3: a 44-year-old woman was suffering from generalized chronic periodontitis, while her 36 had suffered trauma from occlusion because of a small root and unfavorable crown-to-root ratio. This was treated by a root canal and would be restored by onlay. The tooth had 2° of mobility. Coronoplasty was carried out for teeth with 2° of mobility. Coronoplasty was carried out by reducing the occlusal scheme buccally and lingually. Conclusion: Coronoplasty can minimize the mobility of teeth that have suffered trauma from occlusion.
