Fractures of the middle third of the root have long been considered hopeless. Since removal of the apical segment creates an undesirable crown-root ratio, whereas too little is left to support a post, core and jacket crown, if the coronal portion is removed. These case reports suggested two modes of treatment of mid-root fractures: a. Non-surgical endodontic stabilizer for cases where root canal of the fractured apical fragment can be negotiated through the routine coronal access opening. b. Surgical endodontic stabilizer for cases where: 1. sever displacement of the fractured fragments has occurred. 2. the root has fractured into many splinters. 3. surgery is mandatory to retain the tooth.
