This week in the clinic: Vertical root fracture

This week I am showcasing an extreme case of vertical root fracture.  This case had complete separation of the two fragments.  I didn’t put an arrow on this radiograph, but I’m sure you can see where the root is split in two.  As this is an extreme case I recommend you check out my page on vertical root fractures for less extreme cases.


For more information and other radiographs of vertical root fractures check out my page on vertical root fractures.

Enjoy!

This week in the clinic is a weekly series featuring cases I have come across since I started in the dental field.  These cases have been collected from throughout the United States and world.  While the series title is ‘This week in the clinic’, that does not necessarily mean the case was actually seen this week in the clinic.
