Traumatic dental injuries are not only a serious public health problem, but they are also the most common injuries among children according to the epidemiological data. Subluxation is defined as the loosening of a tooth without displacement. Coronal fractures are the most common injuries. Considering the treatment options, which are suitable for the concomitant occurrence of these two traumatic injuries, there are only limited number of studies in the literature. In the concomitant occurrence of these two trauma types, like in other traumatic injuries, if the treatment is not implemented timely, long-term problems may develop. The objective of this case report was to describe the therapeutic approach to the subluxation concomitant with a coronal fracture.
