Abstract

A case of non-vital infected dens invaginatus of the maxillary right lateral incisor with open apex, which presented with pain and swelling is presented. Although root growth and apical closure was achieved using calcium hydroxide, the periapical infection persisted and resolution was only achieved after apical curettage and apicectomy.
