Abstract: Vertical root fractures are the most common cause of tooth loss. These have a multifactorial etiology. They lead to advanced periodontal breakdown with deep periodontal pockets and vertical bone defects. Clinical signs and symptoms are often elusive in nature and may be difficult to detect. In this review, the etiology, diagnosis, prevention and management of vertical root fractures is discussed.
