Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has the advantage of being less soluble than calcium hydroxide and offers an enhanced seal due to its setting expansion which hermetically seals the pulp space, preventing bacterial contamination from the outside. The use of MTA as an alternative material to calcium hydroxide for apexification has gained popularity. This case report presents the use of MTA as an apical plug for an open apex central incisor with periapical lesion.
