Thirty «SQ»apexified«SQ» immature permanent anterior teeth treated utilising Ca(OH)2 as root canal dressing assessed clinically and radiographically after greater than 6 less than or equal to 12 years revealed that in 15 teeth bridge remained the same; in 10 consolidated, while in 3 it decreased. Periapical radiolucency reappeared in one case, while in two it was questionable but clinically the teeth were comfortable; these cases were ones showing decrease in bridge consolidation: two teeth had been extracted during this observation period by some dentists because of complaint of discolouration.
