Abstract When a root fracture is located very close to the gingiva, the chance of healing with calcified tissue is poorest. Therefore, a preferable treatment is usually thought to be the removal of the coronal fragment and subsequent orthodontic or surgical extrusion of remaining apical fragment. This case report describes conservative treatment for root fracture located very close to the gingiva. The treatment of root fracture was by repositioning and fixation. A 7-years follow-up showed healing with calcified tissue and pulp canal obliteration.
