Traumatic dental injuries result in damage to many dental and periradicular structures. They can be conservatively managed depending on the extent of the injury. Maxillary central incisors are most commonly involved in traumatic dental injuries mainly because of their anterior and protrusive positioning. The treatment of immature permanent teeth with severe internal resorption poses a lot of challenges to the clinician. The objective of the present article is to report successful management of traumatised maxillary central incisor with incomplete root formation and severe internal resorption in a 10-year-old boy using triple antibiotic paste, mineral trioxide aggregate and fibre-reinforced composite.
