The aim of this case report was to present a treatment strategy for severely injured teeth in children and adolescents by using periodontal surgery and adhesive techniques. A 16-year-old boy presented after a severe bicycle accident. A radiograph revealed a root fracture with connective tissue healing and displacement. Clinically, a crown-root fracture as well as an uncomplicated crown fracture of the same fragment was obvious. The root canal was prepared and filled with gutta-percha to the fracture line. A full periodontal flap was performed, and the crown-root fragment was adhesively fixed. The flap was tightly apposed, and the missing mesial edge of the tooth was restored with composite resin. A control radiograph showed a neatly fixed coronal fragment and sufficient root canal filling. The amount of work required proved to be acceptable for both patient and clinician—even if an implantation might have to be considered when the patient is full-grown—because of the longevity of the procedure.
