When teeth with incomplete root formation suffer pulp necrosis, the root development ceases and apical closure cannot be achieved. Root canal treatment at this time is a significant challenge, because of the size of the canal, the thin and fragile dentine walls and the large open apex. The goal of apexification was to obtain an apical barrier to prevent the passage of toxins and bacteria into the periapical tissues from the root canal. MTA appeared to be a valid option for apexification with the added advantage of speed of completion of therapy. The reinforcement of the composite resins by fibers improves their fracture toughness and resistance. The Fiber reinforced composite resin can be a good alternative to conventional post systems. The aim of this article was to present a clinical case of fractured anterior teeth with open apex where single step apexification was done with MTA and intraradicular rehabilitation was done with fiber reinforced composite.
