  • If a tooth fragment is available, it can be bonded to the tooth.
  • Grinding or restoration with composite resin depending on the extent and location of the fracture.
  • Three angulations (periapical, occlusal and eccentric exposures) should be used in the radiographic examination to rule out luxation injuries or root fractures.


  • Clinical and radiographic control at 6-8 weeks and 1 year.
