Background: Coronal fractures of the anterior teeth are a common form of dental trauma that mainly affects children and adolescents. The present study was conducted to evaluate the restoration of fractured teeth by reattaching tooth fragment to its tooth remnant with different restorative materials. Materials & Methods: The present in vitro study was conducted on 24 children with fractured incisors. Teeth were divided into 2 groups. Group I teeth were uncomplicated crown fractures and group II were complicated crown fractures. Force required to fracture the segments were recorded. Results: Group I teeth were uncomplicated crown fracture + wet medium; group II was uncomplicated crown fracture + dry medium; group III were complicated crown fracture + wet medium, and group IV were complicated crown fracture + dry medium. Each group had 6 teeth. The mean force required to fracture reattachment teeth in group I was 198 N, in group II was 192, in group III was 234 N and in group IV was 165 N. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Conclusion: Fragment reattachment can be used to treat fractured teeth successfully in children.
