Abstract

Apexification is the standard procedure for the management of immature non-vital teeth. This report presents a case of a traumatic injury to a maxillary central incisor that lead to total pulp necrosis and a large periapical lesion. Calcium hydroxide apexification was used successfully in the treatment of this case.
