Abstract

Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth are a common form of dental trauma that mainly affects children and adolescents. If the original tooth fragment is retained following fracture, reattachment of the fractured fragment to the remaining tooth can provide better and long-lasting aesthetics along with improved function. This report describes a case of fragment reattachment in an 18-year-old male patient following trauma to the maxillary central incisor, with 1 and 6-month follow-up.
