Abstract

Aim

To present a case of vertical tooth fracture treated by adhesive bonding and banding before root canal treatment.

Method

In this case, a vertically fractured maxillary premolar was stabilized by adhesive resin and orthodontic stainless steel band followed by root canal treatment.

Conclusion

The prognosis of teeth with cracks depends on the location and extent of the crack. Early recognition and treatment is the key to proper management.
