An interdisciplinary approach for fragment reattachment of fractured maxillary central incisor: A Case Report


Somdatta Raha

Crown fractures are the most common consequences of traumatic injuries that mainly occur in the anterior permanent dentition. The most common reasons are attributed to falls, high-impact sports, and motor vehicle accidents. The choice of the aesthetic restorative treatment of fractured anterior teeth remains the biggest challenge for the dentist. Treatment options include composite resin restoration, fragment reattachment, and ceramic restorations (full crowns, laminate veneers, or ceramic fragments). When the tooth fragment is present and in good working condition, the best option for the treatment of a coronal fracture fragment is reattachment. Proposed as a simple and conservative option, fragment reattachment restores the morphological, functional, and aesthetic aspects of the dentition, while maintaining the shape, contour, texture, colour, and alignment of the natural teeth.
