A long-term follow up of spontaneously healed root fractures later subjected to orthodontic forces - two case reports



A long-term follow up of spontaneously healed root fractures later subjected to orthodontic forces - two case reports



Dental Traumatology 24(2): 231-234



There is evidence that many dental injuries which result in root fractures may not require active treatment in cases where the coronal fragment is minimally displaced and does not exhibit clinical signs or symptoms. This paper discusses two individual cases where spontaneous root fracture healing was observed and this healing was apparently not compromised by later orthodontic tooth movement. The observation periods for the two cases were 13 and 18 years since the original root fractures occurred.
