Pulp necrosis in the apical segment is extremely rare. Pulp necrosis in the coronal segment results because of its displacement and occurs in only about 25% of cases. Because 75% do not lose vitality, emergency treatment involves repositioning the segments in as close proximity as possible and splinting the teeth for 2 to 4 weeks.

After the splinting period is completed, follow-up is as with all dental traumatic injuries, at 3, 6, and 12 months and then yearly thereafter.
