Immediate autogenous reattachment of fractured tooth fragment post trauma: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Megha Rao, Dr. BS Keshava Prasad and Dr. Vanamala Narayana
ABSTRACT:Fractures of the anterior teeth are one of the most common forms of dental injury that occur during trauma to the head and neck region. These complications can be managed conservatively and immediately through autogenous reattachment procedures. Reattachment procedures are an immediate solution in the management of coronal fractures in which the patient’s own fractured tooth fragment is bonded back onto the remaining portion of the tooth after endodontic therapy. This technique restores proper form, function, and aesthetics of the tooth in a short duration of time and also significantly impacts the post traumatic psychological rehabilitation of the patient. The recent advances in bondable dental materials have made these reattachment procedures much more predictable. This paper describes a case report of a patient who reported with a fractured tooth post trauma to the face and was treated using endodontic therapy followed by reattachment of the fractured tooth fragment using anchorage from a fiber post.
