Dental traumatic injuries in primary teeth are common in younger children. Root fractures in deciduous teeth are considered as a rare entity among all the dental traumatic injuries. These cases highlight the conservative management of intra alveolar root fracture in primary anterior teeth which were stabilized with multi-flex wire using composite resin. Patients were followed till the eruption of permanent successors. During follow ups, the patients were asymptomatic, roots of the deciduous teeth showed normal physiologic resorption and permanent teeth erupted in their normal position without any developmental defects related to the permanent teeth.
