Loss of pulp vitality in an immature permanent tooth arrests root development. This leads to tooth with open apex and weak lateral dentinal walls. Management of such necrotic teeth with immature roots poses several treatment challenges. The documented study was performed to evaluate and compare apexogenesis induced by revascularization, with and without platelet rich plasma (PRP) in non-vital, immature anterior teeth. Three patients having bilateral, non-vital, immature maxillary central incisors with apical periodontitis were recruited after institutional ethical clearance. Subsequent to chemo-mechanical preparation, revascularization with and without PRP was randomly induced in either of the tooth. The cases were followed-up clinically and radiographically at 6 and 12 months. There was a marked difference in periapical healing, apical closure and dentinal wall thickening of teeth treated by revascularization with PRP.
