This 7-year-old girl experienced pain in her upper central incisors following a fall to the ground. Radiographic examination revealed immature upper central incisors with mid-root oblique and horizontal root fractures. Splinting was performed. When at 3 months, an electric pulp test was positive for both injured teeth, and after 5 months, the fracture lines had disappeared on the radiographs, the splint removed. After 2 years, clinical examination showed normal tooth color and position, with a positive response to the pulp test. Radiographs demonstrated continuous root development, although root canal narrowing was noted at the healed fracture sites.
