The incidence of fractured teeth seems to be increasing. Fractures normally result from cracks that develop over a period of time until the tooth separates into either buccal or lingual fragments. The diagnosis and early treatment can often prevent needless, extended discomfort and more extensive treatment. Determining the exact nature and extend of the fracture, the restorability of the tooth, and the reversibility of the pulpal response are the dentist's challenge. The diagnosis and types of treatment modalities will be discussed.
