Abstract

Abstract Objective: this study reports on an apexogenesis of a 9-year-old boy. After the patient had hit a car door in an accident, he fractured his crown and root. He then was referred to the Faculty of Dentistry, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences after he had been visited by a general dentist for two months. Methods: having done dental radiography, it became clear that the tooth was immature. After an access cavity was prepared, vital pulp therapy was performed over tooth 8 using the apexogenesis technique and MTA. Results: the radiography and clinical results after following up for a period of 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months showed that the tooth was functioning normally and that it was growing and was complete, and the apex was formed. No further treatment was needed. Conclusion: considering the potential of recovering the vital pulp (vital pulp therapy) which is immature and suffers trauma, applying apexogenesis can be appropriate, even two months after the accident. Keywords Author Keywords:Apexogenesis; Trauma; Crown-Root Fractures; Pulpotomy
