Traumatic injuries of teeth are the main cause of emergency treatment in dental practice. Horizontal root fractures are more frequently observed in the maxillary anterior region and young male patients. The most common type of root fracture is in the middle third, followed by apical, and coronal part. This case report describes two horizontal root fractures of the maxillary right central and lateral incisors due to a sport injury. The lateral incisor was healed satisfactorily without treatment. The central incisor was endodontically treated.
