Examining the nature of stress distribution within the intact tooth can aid in understanding how natural tooth structures are able to resist mechanical forces during masticatory function. Identification of potential fractures in teeth on clinical examination is essential for correct diagnosis, particularly if there is pulpal involvement. This discussion will consider the different types of fracture, their identification and management. This paper will highlight management of tooth fractures, including identifying prognostic indicators, which are largely dependent on the extent of the fracture within the tooth structure.
