  • PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) with calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] clinically and radiographically as materials used to induce root-end closure in necrotic permanent teeth with immature apices (apexification). METHODS Fifteen children, each with at least 2 necrotic permanent teeth requiring root-end closure (apexification), were selected for this study. All selected teeth were evenly divided into 2 test groups. In group 1, the conventional calcium… CONTINUE READING
