The combination of a surgical and adhesive restorative approach to treat a deep crown-root fracture: A case report
Roeters, Joost / Bressers, Jan Paul
Most dental trauma requires immediate action to preserve the affected teeth. Furthermore, the trauma has often a great impact on the appearance and well being of the patient. In this case trauma resulted in a very deep complicated crown-root fracture of one incisor and a complicated crown fracture in another incisor of a 47-year-old woman. A combination of surgical extrusion and adhesive restoration was chosen to provide good prognosis for the teeth as well as an instant esthetic result that was well accepted by the patient. Eleven months after trauma, the treated teeth exhibited good healing and normal function.
