This case report describes the management of crown- and root-fractured maxillary and mandibular anterior permanent teeth in a 22-year-old patient because of a bicycle accident. Six teeth (11, 21, 22, 23, 31, and 32) of patient were affected by trauma. A nonsurgical endodontic treatment was performed to coronal root fragments of teeth 11, 21, and 22. The coronal parts of the canals were filled with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). These teeth were restored with a fiber-reinforced hybrid composite resin bridge. Other root-fractured teeth 23 and 32 were healed spontaneously. The tooth 31 with complicated crown-fractured was prepared and filled with gutta-percha and sealer. After, a glass-fiber post was applied, the restoration of this tooth was performed a hybrid composite resin using an incremental technique. The teeth were in function with satisfactory clinical and radiographic results after 24-month. Healing was achieved without any need for further endodontic surgical intervention. This case shows that traumatized teeth can be managed with endodontic and prosthetic treatments, which can result in satisfactory periradicular healing.
