Figure 1: (a) Pre-operative photograph of the patient in the case study, (b) Pre-operative radiograph of the patient in the case study revealing an incompletely formed apex of mandibular right 2nd premolar, and with a diffuse radiolucency of about 0.5 x 0.5 cm around the apex. Obturation of #46 is also noted here, and not is not meeting acceptable standards, (c) Mineral Trioxide Aggregate apical plug placed in the root canal such that an apical stop approximately 3-4 mm thick is created, (d) Platelet Rich Fibrin Membrane obtained from the patient in the study, (e): Two month follow-up radiograph the patient in the study showing satisfactory healing, (f): One year follow-up radiograph the patient in the study showing satisfactory healing
