This case report describes a successful treatment of vertically fractured tooth which was reconstructed with a self-etching dual-cured adhesive resin cement and intentionally replanted without using rotation in conjunction with a bio-absorbable barrier membrane. At a follow-up consultation 4 years later, the tooth was asymptomatic, and attachment gain and bone regeneration were observed. In addition, no ankylosis was detected clinically or radiographically.
