Epidemiological studies indicate the annual incidence of dental trauma globally is at about 4.5%. Approximately one‐third of children and toddlers (primary teeth) and one‐fifth of adolescents and adults (permanent teeth) sustained a traumatic dental injury.The aim of the study is to evaluate the association of the patients undergoing reattachment of fractured teeth and compare the age and gender of the patient.The majority involved the maxillary central incisors, mainly from falls in toddlers at home and contact sport in adolescents. It is a retrospective study. The details of the patient records were reviewed and analyzed from June 2019 to March 2020 out of which data of 10 patients who had undergone fractured tooth reattachment were included in this study. The details like age, gender, tooth number were evaluated and entered in SPSS, version 23.It is observed that there is no significant difference among age and sex of the patient who underwent reattachment of fractured teeth. Within the limitation, males had undergone more attachment procedures than females. Endodontic approach was most prevalent in all age groups while conservative approach was prevalent only in 20 to 40 years age group.
