Success of endodontic therapy is dependent on multiple factors such as thorough preoperative evaluation, magnification and isolation techniques, complete debridement of diseased pulp tissue with disinfection of the canal and three-dimensional obturation. The process of root formation can be hampered in young permanent teeth due to trauma. Endodontic treatment of such cases with open apex is a challenge and retreatment in such cases is an even bigger challenge. Use of contemporary materials such as mineral trioxide aggregate, thermoplasticized gutta percha, and magnification in the form of a dental operating microscope can help in achieving predictable and long-term success in such cases.
