Abstract

Maxillary anteriors are the most commonly affected teeth in dental traumatic injuries. Crown-root fracture is one type of traumatic injury with several treatment modalities existing for management. One of them is the reattachment of the fractured fragment in a suitable condition. Fragment reattachment provides immediate esthetics and function and is also less time-consuming procedure. If the fragment is lost, other alternatives such as direct and indirect restorations may be considered. The purpose of this report is to present two cases describing the management of complicated crown-root fractures of maxillary anterior teeth treated with a multidisciplinary approach.
