Abstract

Management of non vital teeth with open apices isa challenge to the dental practitioners. In this clinical scenario, it is difficult to maintain the obturating material confine within the root canal without encroaching into periapical area. These kinds of cases cannot be managed by conventional endodontic treatment, and treatment of such cases with calcium hydroxide may take longer time for apical closure. But with this new material called BIODENTINE (Septodont) same treatment can be done in single visit with predictable result. Hence this case report present the use ofbiodentine to form an apical plug in open apex followed by complete root canal obturation using thermoplasticized guttapercha.
