Immature weakened teeth with open apex have wide, flared canal spaces, and thin dentinal walls that are prone to fracture. The management of theses compromised teeth lies in obtaining a good apical seal and reinforcing the remaining root structure. This article describes how to rehabilitate a structurally compromised immature anterior tooth. Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) was used to form an immediate apical seal and the weakened roots are reinforced using fibre post placed inside the canal.
