Abstract

Crown fracture is the most common type of dental injuries. One of the options of management of crown fracture is fragment reattachment, whenever intact tooth fragment is available after trauma. The fragment reattachment procedure presents a conservative, simple and esthetic alternative. This article presents two case reports of restoration of fractured maxillary central incisor using fragment reattachment.
