The importance of a vital decision for a nonvital permanent tooth with an open apex cannot be overstressed. The root at the growing end is so thin and fragile that it breaks during obturation maneuvers, resulting in micro-gaps and leakage. Hence, to prevent the chance of root resorption and the loss of a permanent tooth at an early stage in life, the procedure should be chosen that provides an apical stop-either through multivisit or single visit apexification procedures; additionally, the patient should be scheduled for recall evaluation every 3 months over the next 5 years.
