Rajput A, Talwar S, Ataide I, Verma M, Wadhawan N - Case Rep Dent (2011)

Bottom Line: Because of impaired function, esthetics, and phonetics, such patients are quite apprehensive during their emergency visit.Successful pain management with immediate restoration of function, esthetics and phonetics should be the prime objective while handling such cases.After two and half years, the reattached fragment still has satisfying esthetics and excellent function.

ABSTRACT
Complicated crown-root fracture of maxillary central and lateral incisors is common in case of severe trauma or sports-related injury. It happens because of their anterior positioning in oral cavity and protrusive eruptive pattern. On their first dental visit, these patients are in pain and need emergency care. Because of impaired function, esthetics, and phonetics, such patients are quite apprehensive during their emergency visit. Successful pain management with immediate restoration of function, esthetics and phonetics should be the prime objective while handling such cases. This paper describes immediate treatment of oblique crown root fracture of maxillary right lateral incisor with reattachment procedure using light transmitting fiber post. After two and half years, the reattached fragment still has satisfying esthetics and excellent function.

Mentions: A 23-year-old patient reported to the dental hospital after 5 days of trauma and sustained a complicated crown-root fracture to the maxillary right lateral incisor (Figure 1). The fracture line was oblique extending in apical direction from labial to palatal surface. The margin on palatal surface was located about 1.5 mm from the free gingival margin and can be probed easily with a periodontal probe. The fractured fragment was attached to the root but was very mobile. Patient was very apprehensive about his fractured tooth. He was assured, and the condition was explained to the patient. Of the various treatment options explained to the patient, he preferred to retain the fractured fragments.
