IADT treatment guidelines for enamel-dentin fracture


Clinical findings

  • Fracture involves enamel and dentin; the pulp is not exposed.

Radiographic findings

  • No radiographic abnormalities. The relation between the fracture and the pulp chamber will be disclosed.


  • If possible, seal the involved dentin completely with glass ionomer to prevent microleakage. In case of large lost tooth structure, the tooth can be restored with composite.


  • 3-4 weeks – Clinical examination.
