Apexification using biodentine: A case report

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sanju Dahiya and Dr. Neha Singhal
ABSTRACT:The dental professionals have a struggle to handle non-vital teeth with open apices. It is difficult to retain the obturating material inside the root canal in this clinical scenario without invading the periapical region. Such cases cannot be handled with traditional endodontic therapy and it might take longer for apical closure to treat such cases with calcium hydroxide. However, the same procedure can be completed in one visit with predictable results with this new material called biodentine. Therefore, this case study presents the use of Biodentine to create an open apex apical plug, followed by complete root canal sealing with thermoplastic gutta-percha.
