Abstract

An immature tooth with pulpal necrosis causes the root canal to be wide, with thin and fragile walls, and the apex remains open. Endodontic treatment options for such teeth consist of conventional apexification procedure with and without apical barriers. Biodentin is new calcium silicate based cement that exhibits physical and chemical properties similar to those described for certain Portland cement derivatives but with distinct advantages. This article demonstrates single visit apexification using Biodentine as an apical barrier along with platelet rich fibrin as internal matrix.

Key words: Apexification, biodentine, internal matrix, platelet rich fibrin, single visit
