Abstract

AIM:

In this clinical study combined surgical and endodontic treatment was performed in 20 cases of crown-root fracture and the outcomes reviewed.

METHODOLOGY:

Surgical treatment involved a conventional extraction and stabilization technique. Root canal treatment using calcium hydroxide was performed. Before root canal obturation, a calcium hydroxide dressing was maintained for 3 months.

RESULTS:

Follow-up examinations, which varied between 6 and 36 (mean 14.5) months, showed that there were no radiographic and clinical signs of progressive root resorption, marginal bone loss or periapical disease in all except one case.

CONCLUSIONS:

The favourable results of this study demonstrate that surgical extrusion in teeth with crown-root fractures may be an alternative treatment to orthodontic extrusion.
