Fracture of maxillary anterior teeth are the most common form of traumatic injuries. This kind of traumas may affect the patient both socially and psychologically, so immediate treatment should be carried out. The best treatment is reattachment of the available fractured fragment as this results in original anatomic form and long-lasting esthetics. The aim of this article is to present a case report on management of complicated crow-root fracture by reattachment of the fractured fragment using a prefabricated post to improve adhesion of the fragment with the tooth.
