A holistic approach to management of fractured teeth fragments: a case report



A holistic approach to management of fractured teeth fragments: a case report



Oral Surgery Oral Medicine Oral Pathology Oral Radiology and Endodontics 109(5): E70



Fracture of anterior teeth is a relatively common outcome of trauma to the teeth. If the fractured teeth fragments are recovered by the patient and brought to the dental office within reasonable time, the fragments may be reattached to the tooth structure. This article presents a case of a 20-year-old man with fractured maxillary central incisors and left maxillary lateral incisor. The fracture involved two-thirds of the crown, compromising the pulp. The procedure used was reattachment of the fractured fragment with bonding system and dual-cure composite resin cement. The techniques described in this case report for reattachment of the fractured fragments are reasonably simple, while restoring providing long-lasting esthetics, improved function, positive psychologic response with a very conservative approach.
