Dental trauma in immature teeth with necrotic pulp and apical foramen with large thin and fragile walls becomes a challenge to treat conventional endodontic treatment. The objective of this report is to demonstrate a clinical case in which the apexification through calcium hydroxide-based dressing, succeeded in forming a calcified apical barrier. It concluded that a barrier with mineral trioxide aggregate superimposed with the endodontic obturation of gutta-percha advocated in the central incisor led to a successful endodontic procedure.
