A 21-year-old male patient reported with chief complaint of pain in the upper front teeth. Clinical examination revealed tooth fracture in teeth # 11, 21, and prior attempted endodontic treatment. The radiographic examination revealed periapical radiolucency in relation to upper central incisors with thinning of dentinal walls. The upper left central incisor had grossly diminished root canal dentin walls with immature apex, whereas the upper right central incisor had moderate loss of dentin from the root canal wall with an open apex. Hence, it was decided to extract the upper left central incisor, whereas apexification and root canal dentin wall reinforcement with Biodentine were carried out for the upper right central incisor. The patient was asymptomatic at 1-, 4-, and 6-month follow-up visits.
