Özet

The main objective of treatment of an undeveloped tooth (immature) is to provide vital pulp therapy to allow continued development of root dentin. A case report is presented that demonstrates the use of calcium hydroxide (CaOH2) as an indirect pulp-copping material for the purpose of continued maturogenesis of an early-erupted permanent tooth with severe mobility and almost-begun root formation. Seven-year radiographic and clinical follow-up demonstrated a vital pulp and physiologic root development without any endodontic failure clinically or radiographicaly.
