Grossmann, Yoav / Arauz-Dutari, Jose / Chogle, Sami M. / Blatz, Markus B. / Sadan, Avishai
Subgingival crown-root fractures are major complications that jeopardize tooth survival and require the clinician to adopt a multidisciplinary approach combining different dental specialties to effectively treat the teeth and ensure long-term survival. Fragment reattachment is a conservative therapeutic option for uncomplicated crown-root fractures. However, biologic width involvement must be carefully evaluated and addressed. This article describes a case of restoration of a crown-root fracture by means of periodontal surgical exposure of the fracture, crown and root recontouring, and fragment reattachment.
