Abstract Forced eruption offers a method of treatment of teeth fractured close to the alveolar crest. We introduce a modification of this common technique. The fractured fragment of a patient's crown is bonded to the adjacent teeth and used as anchorage, permitting the root extrusion while offering acceptable aesthetics. The bonded crown does not impede the eruption of the root so that the frequent occlusal adjustment of other methods is not required. The final result is acceptable and a low cost alternative to common techniques.
