Various authors have demonstrated the regenerative process in immature, non vital teeth by revascularization induced maturogenesis. The aim of this case report is to compare calcium hydroxide apexification and pulp revascularization induced maturation procedures in the same patient, in two different teeth. The right maxillary central incisor in this individual was treated with conventional calcium hydroxide induced apexification procedure followed by guttaperchaobturation, and the left maxillary central incisor was treated by pulp revascularization induced maturation procedures. 24 months follow-up shows root elongation and apical closure in the tooth treated with revascularization induced maturation procedures. Revascularization induced maturogenesis, where indicated, can provide several advantages over conventional apexification procedures.
