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: After two and half years, the treated tooth has satisfying excellent esthetics and function (Figures 9 and 10). There was no mobility of any of the fragments, and the periodontal status in relation to maxillary right lateral incisor was satisfactory (no periodontal pockets with normally contoured palatal gingiva). Radiographic examination reveals satisfactory healing, and no discoloration was evident on clinical examination (Figure 11).
