Crown root fractures are seldom observed in the primary molars. The extensive involvement of the pulp dictates the treatment of such teeth for extraction. Early extraction of primary molars can lead to transient or permanent malocclusion, esthetic, phonetic and functional problems. The aim of this case report is to describe the diagnosis of an unusual complicated crown- root fracture involving the primary molars of a 4-year-old girl child as well as to describe its management in order to preserve them as a functional unit of the dentition.
