Keywords:mid root fracture, intraradicular splint, fiber post, fiber post porcelain fused to metal crown
Root fractures are defined as fracture of tooth that involves cementum, dentin and pulp, comprising from 0.5 to 7% of injuries in permanent dentition. Diagnosis is made through clinical and radiographic examination, the later frequently being limited by the position of the fracture. Treatment varies according to the displacement and vitality of the fragments. The objective of this clinical case report is to represent the reinforcement of a mid- root fracture using fiber post as intraradicular splint and restoring its esthetics by porcelain fused to metal crown. The fragments were stabilized with a glass fiber post and patient has been on follow-up for one year. Follow-up of the case showed promising results both clinically and radiographically.
