Abstract

The purpose of this case report is to present a root fracture repair procedure for non devitalized injured tooth. One injured, non-endodontically treated maxillary anterior tooth in which an incomplete vertical root fracture involving only the buccal side was suspected, underwent an exploratory flap to visualize the pattern of bone loss and assess the type of root fracture. The pre-operative diagnosis was confirmed. A groove following fracture line was prepared using retro-tips driven by an ultrasonic device and sealed with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA), following filling of the bone defect with Calcium Sulphate. At 24 months follow up the case showed clinical and radiographic success. The present surgical approach showed preservation of function and vitality of tooth with a shallow incomplete vertical root fracture.
