Abstract

Trauma has a lasting effect on both physical as well as mental well-being of an individual. Traumatic dental injury can be distressing for anyone right from a pre-schooler to a teenager to an adult. Hence it’s imperative to restore the affected teeth to reinstate not only the lost confidence but also the lost aesthetics and functionality. This report showcases an intricate case of a 12-year-old male, where uncomplicated crown fracture was associated with extrusive luxation injury in a tooth with open apex which became devitalized and was managed by splinting followed by apexification. Management of even such cases with guarded prognosis can be done conservatively to ensure functional as well as aesthetic rehabilitation. Restoring the tooth to function will help the patient regain his lost confidence. Hence, there cannot be a cookbook approach to manage dental traumatic injuries as many times fractures and luxation injuries occur concurrently.
