Traumatic injuries in the oral and maxillofacial region occur frequently and comprise 5% of all injuries for which people seek treatment. The highest incidence of dental traumatic injuries is seen in the early childhood. Esthetics plays an important role on psychological perspective of an individual. The fracture of an anterior tooth in young individuals requires rehabilitation of the affected tooth. This article presents a clinical case of an 18-year-old patient with a structurally compromised, fractured maxillary central and lateral incisor with a short root and an open apex with relatively thin root dentinal walls, which was managed by apexification using Mineral trioxide aggregate, Intra-oral periaoical radiograph and root canal reinforcement or intraradicular rehabilitation done using light transmitting fiber post and flowable composite.
