Traumatic dental injuries often result in endodontic complications. The aim of treatment strategies for traumatized immature teeth should be preserving pulp vitality to ensure further root development and tooth maturation. There are several advantages of promoting apexogenesis in immature teeth with open apices. It encourages a longer and thicker root to develop thus decreasing the propensity of long-term root fracture. Here is a presentation of a case of 7-year-old boy where a traumatized immature maxillary central incisor showed the capacity for further root development and apexogenesis after performing vital pulp therapy and a follow-up of 5 years shows asymptomatic healthy tooth.
