Abstract –Root fractures occur more frequently in fully erupted permanent teeth with closed apices in which the completely formed root is solidly supported in the bone and periodontium. The consequences can be complex because of combined damage to the pulp, dentine, cementum, bone, and periodontium. Management of horizontal root fractures and lateral luxation depends on several factors, with the result that various clinical modalities have been suggested. This case report describes the treatment and 10-year follow-up of two maxillary central incisors, one with horizontal root fracture and the other with lateral luxation, treated with mineral trioxide aggregate and root canal treatment, respectively.
