Abstract

The present case report describes a multidisciplinary approach involving endodontic, restorative, surgical and periodontal treatment and rehabilitation of a central incisor with crown-root fracture (CRF) in an 11-year-old child. Although in the future possible sequelae and complications should be considered since it is an extensive trauma, the prognosis of the present case is favorable, with the occurrence of repair, evidenced by clinical, radiographic and tomographic success, after one year and six months of follow-up. It was concluded that the association of prolonged flexible splint, biological endodontic treatment, gingivoplasty and restorative/rehabilitative procedures seem to be an adequate and conservative management for CRF cases.
