Abstract:
Of the teeth facing with root fractures seen in early permanent dentition, maxillary central incisors are the most common and middle third of the root is the most-affected-part. Although in most of the healed-cases, there was partial or complete obliteration of the pulp space; with proper therapy vitality could be kept in the apical part of the root and a successful-apical closure could be achieved in young permanent teeth having open-apex. A case report of the treatment of a young permanent maxillary-incisor having an open apex with root fractures is presented. The fracture line was treated with Calcium Hydroxide (CaOH) root endodontically filled till fracture line, during first 8 months. Clinically, the teeth became firm and the radiographic results after 4 years showed healing and hard tissue filling in the space at the fracture line and a successful apical closure. As a result, adequate observation period, vitality and/or radiographic control, complains of pain or discomfort of the tooth are the major factors which is guide for the performing successful endodontic therapy along the all root-length.
