Management of complicated crown root fracture using
orthodontic extrusion procedure
AUTHORS : Phukan Anuve Hrishi, Chopra Radhika, Bora Neelutpal, Sachdev Vinod DOI No. : DOI Link. : Complicated crown-root fracture caused by a traumatic injury
poses a treatment dilemma for the dentist as these teeth most
often require multidisciplinary treatment approach.
Management of such injuries can be done by various
procedures such as surgical crown lengthening, extraction
and orthodontic extrusion. In this case report we have treated
a crown-root fracture by endodontic treatment followed by
orthodontic extrusion/forced eruption and prosthetic
rehabilitation with a crown. The treatment modalities
basically include exposing the cervical margin of the tooth
followed by appropriate coronal restoration. They all have
their own limitations but orthodontic extrusion gives better
results as compared to the others.
