Traumatic injury to an immature tooth may result in pulpal necrosis secondary to pulp canal obliteration, which makes the management of the tooth a clinical challenge for dentists. The present case report describes an innovative apical plug technique with mineral trioxide aggregate in a calcified immature tooth using an ultrasonic tip and long, thin, tapered fissure burs. The technique was proven to be successful clinically and radiographically at 2 years postobturation.
