Figure 1: (a) Intraoral periapical radiograph of tooth #11 revealed a horizontal root fracture at the junction of middle and apical third, blunting and loss of lamina dura of the root segment coronal to the fracture, widening of the fractured line, and substantial linear displacement of the apical segment. (b) Cone-beam computed tomography image (sagittal section) of tooth #11 confirmed the diagnosis. A large radiolucent area (gray-scale value 89) between the fractured segments, suggestive of granulation tissue. (c) Intraoral periapical radiograph of tooth #11. Orthograde mineral trioxide aggregate barrier and obturation with thermoplasticized gutta-percha
