Traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) are of great concern when it comes to a child. Crown-root fracture is the most complicated type as both crown and root are affected by trauma. Complicated crown-root fracture seldom occurs in deciduous dentition. It is a tragic experience and requires immediate attention and quick functional and esthetic repair. Appropriate and early diagnosis leads to successful treatment, for which knowledge on types of TDIs, classification, and management is necessary. Complete restoration of teeth affected with trauma will restore function and esthetics and preserve occlusal harmony. The objective of the present case report is to discuss the appropriate diagnosis and conservative treatment of this unusual and rare case of complicated crown-root fracture in a 4-year-old child using tooth fragment reattachment. This case will focus on the options to restore the uncommon trauma and normalize the function and esthetics of the patient, which will lead to improvement of speech, increase in self-confidence and protection of successors, and describe the treatment and aspects concerning follow-up of the patient.
