This article discusses the different aspects of biological restorations Introduction Fractured tooth crowns , Primary teeth with extensive carious lesions are routinely observed in clinical practice. Tooth material loss at an early age may not only lead to establishment of neuro-muscular imbalance leading to decreased masticatory efficacy but also phonetic and esthetic problems, development of parafunctional, psychological problems.1 To restore them is thus a challenge for the clinician. Diverse treatment options are available today like , composite restorations stainless steel crowns, cheng crowns, dura crowns, strip crowns, glastech crowns, pedo jacket crowns etc. Out of the various treatment options available to rehabilitate severely destroyed tooth crowns, conservatively and biologically, several authors have suggested the use of tooth structure as a restorative material. 1,2 The term biologic restoration was introduced by Santos and Bianchi
The goal of dentistry is to replace missing teeth to restore masticatory function and aesthetics. Treatment of such situation is either removable prostheses or a fixed bridge framework, which not only cause discomfort to the patient but also involves the preparation of one or more healthy teeth.1 Autotransplantation involves the transfer of tooth from one portion of alveolus to another site in the same individual.

A strength of plain x-ray radiographs over bone scintigraphy is its high spatial resolution. Fine anatomical details such as trabecular bone pattern and edges can be well demonstrated in radiographs, which helps to distinguish the lesion type identified in bone scan . For example, pathological fractures may mimic bone tumors in bone scintigraphy but a proper diagnosis can be reached with the aid of plain x-ray radiographs, because of the great differences between their appearances in
