REPLANTATION OF TOOTH WITH INTRA-ALVEOLAR TRANSVERSE CROWN & ROOT FRACTURE
 
Abstract
Intra-alveolar transverse crown & root fx. provokes many problems in treatment. Conventionally, extraction of the injured tooth and its prosthodontic restoration has been the treatment of choice. Though orthodontic extrusion could be an alternative treatment, there would be a situation it's inadequate to apply. Loss of natural tooth would be a psychological damage to the patient, of course. This report describes a replantation method of tooth in case of intra-alveolar transverse crown & root fracture. The fractured tooth was extracted, rotated, then replanted. Fixation and esthetic restoration was done. And then endodontic treatment was followed. Continuing follow-up of its function and endodontic status is required.
