Rights and Permissions

The upper deciduous incisors are frequently the teeth most commonly affected either by dental caries or due to the impact of trauma. In such cases, there may be complete coronary destruction of teeth. As they erupt around 7½–9 months of age and the roots only complete at approximately 18–24 months, pulp involvement may occur even before the end of this process. Hereby, we highlight the case of a 15-month-old male patient who reported with a history of trauma. Treatment plan of apexification was made after confirming with multiple radiographs. Root-end closure was obtained after a period of 7 months.
