Loss of pulp vitality in an immature permanent tooth will lead to arrested root development, due to which there will be tooth with open apex and weak lateral dentinal walls. Management of such necrotic teeth with immature roots poses several treatment challenges. The documented case report illustrates the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in nonvital, immature anterior teeth for revascularization. Subsequent to chemomechanical preparation, revascularization with PRP was randomly induced in tooth. The cases were followed-up clinically and radiographically at 3, 6, and 12 months. There was a marked difference in periapical healing, apical closure, and dentinal wall thickening of teeth treated by revascularization with PRP.
