BACKGROUND: This article describes the management of a complicated crown root fracture.
CASE REPORT: A young patient presented with a crown root fracture of the maxillary left central incisor with an oblique subgingival fracture line. A multidisciplinary treatment approach including endodontic treatment, orthodontic extrusion, surgical extraction and intra-alveolar repositioning was used to gain sufficient crown length of the fractured maxillary incisor. The coronally repositioned maxillary left central incisor was stabilised by sutures and a resin wire splint. A resin core was built up followed by fabrication of an all-ceramic crown. Clinical and radiographic follow-up of the maxillary left central incisor after 24 months showed no signs of bone resorption or pathology and good aesthetics and functions were maintained.
