Aim: To report a case of middle third root fracture in right maxillary central incisor with compromised root-crown ratio which was successfully managed by a single unit endodontic stabilizer core and crown. Summary: Conservation is fast becoming the basis of human activity in many fields. Restoration of fractured anterior teeth has long been a test of a clinician's skill due to the inherent demand for excellent aesthetics. The tooth with fractured root impairing crown-root ratio can be saved by use of endodontic stabilizers. This case report describes an innovative treatment strategy for the management of right maxillary central incisor with middle third fracture of the root with compromised root-crown ratio which was successfully managed by a single unit endodontic stabilizer core and crown. Key learning points:
  • Management of mid-root fractures presents a formidable challenge for clinicians because of the difficulty of achieving a stable reunion of fracture fragments.
  • The use of endodontic stabilizers for improving crown root ratio of the tooth is recommended
