Abstract

Aim: This report aims to present the application of partial pulpotomy procedures in fractured maxillary central incisors with immature roots.

Methodology: Two cases of complicated crown fractures are reported. A 7-year-old male patient with a fractured maxillary left central incisor tooth and 8-year-old female patient with fractured maxillary right and left central incisor teeth were referred to the clinic after trauma. Partial pulpotomies were performed and MTA was applied directly onto the pulps followed by coronal restoration.

Results: The application of partial pulpotomy procedures in immature permanent teeth with complicated crown fractures has resulted in the formation of hard tissue barrier and complete root development. Follow up confirmed successful outcomes.

Conclusions: Partial pulpotomy procedures in immature maxillary anterior teeth with complicated crown fractures followed by a proper coronal restoration is a valid treatment approach in well-chosen cases.

Keywords: Complicated crown fracture, mineral trioxide aggregate, partial pulpotomy.
