Abstract

Injury of anterior teeth is a relatively common event that mainly affects children and adolescents. Dentists are confronted with managing dental trauma and restoring fractured teeth on a regular basis. Hence the techniques that speed and simplify the treatment, restore esthetics and improve long term success rate are considered of potential value. If an intact tooth fragment is present after trauma, immediate attachment of the incisal edge is a conservative yet, simple and aesthetic alternative. Fracture reattachment possesses challenging conservative and economically viable procedure within a single visit. The authors wuld report a case of fractured maxillary central incisor using fragment reattachment.

Keywords
