Background: The present study was conducted evaluate the efficacy of revascularization procedures for the management of traumatized immature, nonvital, infected permanent teeth. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 40 immature, nonvital maxillary anterior teeth presenting with or without signs and/or symptoms of periapical pathology. In all teeth, endodontic treatment was initiated, and after infection control, revascularization was performed. The access cavity was sealed with glass ionomer cement. The cases were followed up at regular intervals of 3 months. Results: Out of 40 patients, males were 22 and females were 18. Narrowing of the wide apical opening was evident in 38 (94.7%). Thickening of apical dentinal walls was seen in 6 (15%) and lateral dentinal walls was evident in 45% (12) of cases. Increased root length was observed in 70% (28) of cases. Healing of periapical lesions was seen in 34 (85%). None of the cases presented with pain. Conclusion: Authors found that revascularization procedures in immature nonvital, infected permanent teeth found to be effective. Key words: revascularization, Non vital, periapical pathology.
