AUTHOR(S): Gülşah Uslu DDS, Taha Özyürek DDS PhD, Özlem Ülker DDS, Koray Yılmaz DDS MSc
ABSTRACT: In the present case reports, it was aimed to present the treatment of 2 non-complicated crown fracture trauma cases using reattachment technique. In the first case 12-years-old patient was applied to our clinic due to crown fracture. In the clinic examination the tooth’s mobility was within the normal limits and tooth was not tender to percussion. There was also cold-sensitivity due to the expose of dentin surface. In periapical radiographic examination of the relevant teeth, no root fracture or alveolar fracture accompanying the crown fracture was observed. The teeth were treated using reattachment technique. In follow-up examination, it was determined that the tooth maintained its vitality, and that it was asymptomatic and free of periapical pathology. In the second case 14-years-old patient was applied to our clinic due to crown fracture. As a result of the clinic examination, non-complicated crown fracture was observed in left maxillary central tooth. There was cold-heat sensitivity due to the expose of dentin surface. The mobility was within the normal limits, and ordinary response was obtained for percussion test. In periapical radiographic examination, no accompanying fracture was observed in relevant tooth and adjacent tissues. The teeth were treated using reattachment technique. In follow-up examination, it was determined that the tooth maintained its vitality, and that it was asymptomatic and free of periapical pathology. Reattachment technique brings the function and aesthetic back especially to the adolescent patients. It can be used as a conservative treatment option in the presence of the fractured parts.
