The prognoses of root fracture, endodontic failure or advanced periodontal disease are not favorable. The treatment of choice for such patients includes removal of the tooth and implant therapy. Root fracture is commonly associated with bone loss, especially in the buccal wall, and the aesthetic risk is increased. This article describes the use of the Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration technique to restore a compromised socket through bone graft, implant placement and immediate function in a patient with a complicated crown-root fracture in the maxillary central incisor. The patient was followed up clinically and tomographically for 3 years.
