Apexification is the most widely accepted procedure for the treatment of nonvital immature teeth. Single visit apexification is less time consuming, more economical and an easily acceptable technique with the aim of inducing the formation of a hard tissue barrier, thus allowing proper condensation of gutta percha in the root canal. Factors considered during this procedure are: i. Debridement of root canal minimizing the infection and filling the root canal space with resorbable calcification inducing material i.e. Ca(OH)2. ii. Minimal mechanical intervention to maintain the integrity and vascularity of apical region. Once filled, Ca(OH)2 was not changed again and the treated tooth was examined only radiographically till the desired apical closure was achieved. Three representative cases treated with this single visit apexification technique are discussed here. In all the cases successful apical closure of different types was achieved. Treatment was then concluded with gutta percha obturation in all the cases with successful follow up.
