Majority of the traumatic dental injuries involves the anterior teeth specially the maxillary incisors. Rebonding of the fractured fragment to the tooth retrieved in a fairly intact condition provides an ultra-conservative treatment option. Rebonding techniques provide good esthetics, restores immediate function and provides positive psychological support to the patient. With the introduction of resin based material and the mono block concept, rebonding is a feasible treatment procedure. These case reports discuss the techniques for rebonding fractured fragment to the tooth in a very conservative and cost-effective manner. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • Management of traumatic injuries requires a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Fractured fragment rebonding where the fracture line violates the biological width will require periodontal procedures such as osteotomy, crown lengthening and gingivectomy to be carried out.
  • With the advancement in materials and techniques fractured fragment rebonding offers a viable restorative option for the clinician which restores immediate esthetics using an ultra-conservative approach.
