Sub gingivally fractured tooth requires a precisely planned interdisciplinary management strategies and complete understanding of the lesion. Complicated sub gingivally fractured teeth poses difficulties for the dentists to design efficient treatment plans as they demand interdisciplinary knowledge and approach. A comprehensive understanding of newer techniques, materials and their limitations is essential for achieving more functional and long-lasting anticipated results for the patient with such conditions. This review deals with various conventional treatment approaches and their contemporary modifications in treating a sub-gingivally fractured teeth.
