The development of advanced adhesive systems has made it possible to bond various substrates, e.g., composite resin and vital or nonvital tooth structures. The management of coronal and coronoradicular fractures in the maxillary region with these adhesive materials is easier, safer, and more efficacious than the use of traditional treatment alternatives that involve the use of posts and cores and/or other mechanical devices to obtain retention. Ability to bond the dislocated segment of the fractured tooth constitutes a significant step forward in the management of this clinical condition.
