Recall 4 Years Old- Central Incisor Fracture Repair- By Karin Khalife, BSc DMD

Introduction: 

This case is 4 years old. It was bonded in 2014, using Surpass Universal Adhesive and Titan flowable Composite. I used flow because when I repositioned the fragment, it fit well but the buccal margin was not flush. Some parts were missing. So I used Titan Flowable Composite to fill the gaps, cured it and polished it.

What I did is apply Surpass Universal Adhesive on the fragment and on the tooth, placed Titan flowable on the tooth, seated the fragment, and then co-cured everything together for 1 minute. 3 times 20 seconds with two lamps, one buccal and one lingual.
