Early childhood dental trauma frequently results in the persistence of immature non-vital teeth accompanied by apical periodontitis and inflammatory external root resorption. Due to the lack of a defined apical stop, such teeth provide various challenges to the clinician. The nonsurgical approach is highlighted in this case report. Endodontic treatment of a comparable patient in a unique approach, with long-term clinically favorable results.
