Treatment of crown fracture

Type of treatment Advantages Disadvantages
Fragment reattachment Very conservative. Poor pulp/restoration prognosis, due to difficult moist control?
Restoration soon after injury.
Crown lengthening Relatively easy to perform. Not in an ‘aesthetic sensitive’ region.
Restoration soon after injury.
Orthodontic extrusion ‘Aesthetic sensitive’ region. Time consuming.
Bone and gingival follow the tooth. Root-canal treatment must be performed.
Root length must be sufficient.
Forced surgical extrusion ‘Aesthetic sensitive’ region. More traumatizing.
Rapid procedure. More traumatizing.
Diagnosis of additional fractures. Restoration only after contention period.
Risk of external resorptions?
Extraction
