Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical treatment of immediate dental implant placement of root fractures in adult patients following dentoalveolar trauma. Methods: A descriptive study was performed for cases of root fractures by systematic review of the digital records of all patients with dentoalveolar trauma and root fractures between May 2009 and May 2010 at the Unit of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hospital Clínico Mutual de Seguridad C.Ch.C., Santiago de Chile. Results: A total of 894 dentoalveolar trauma cases were identified, of which 56 (6.3%) were root fractures. In terms of outcome, implants had a 98% success rate, with no complications associated with vestibular bone loss or gingival unaesthetic recession. Conclusion: We believe that immediate replacement of lost teeth after root fractures with dental implants is a reliable option for patients with dental trauma, with no vestibular bone loss complications in the short term.
