Abstract

Introduction Root duplication, or multiple roots, is a very rare anatomy of the maxillary central incisor.

Methods This case report describes a permanent central incisor having 2 distinct roots as an assumed sequela of the avulsion and replantation of a primary incisor.

Results The permanent successor might have had a disturbance of development because of the traumatic injury and discontinuity in the treatment after replantation.

Conventional endodontic treatment followed by esthetic restoration was performed on the tooth. Conclusions Clinicians should consider the potential prognoses and complications of traumatic injuries to primary teeth.
