Abstract

This article reports the treatment of seven traumatized non-vital central incisors in four patients by apexification with Biodentine after placement of a suitable intracanal medicament (Metapex/Triple antibiotic paste) for 15 days. The teeth were obturated in the same appointment. The patients were recalled at intervals of 3 months, 6 months and one year. All teeth were asymptomatic after a follow up of one year and showed radiographic signs of healing. Based on the existing literature and our present cases, Biodentine can be used efficiently for apexification procedure. However, long-term clinical trials and investigations are further required.
