Artificial apical barrier technique for the management of blunder buss canals is being widely used in modern endodontics as compared to the conventional apexification using calcium hydroxide, which in turn is much time consuming. In addition to the current gold standard, MTA, a large number of novel materials are being studied and marketed world wide as pretty promising, effective, and less expensive alternatives for the same. This article describes the successful management of a traumatized and necrotic permanent maxillary central incisor with an open apex using artificial apical barrier technique with a novel endodontic material, Biodentine in which remarkable healing of the periapical lesion could be achieved within 6 months.
