Tooth nonvitality is one of the frequently seen consequences of dental trauma that causes the
arrest of root development. Amniotic membrane has received a lot of attention for its use in
transplantation and regeneration procedures. This article reports a unique and novel case of
successful regenerative endodontic procedure done using amniotic membrane in a traumatized
immature right maxillary central incisor of an 8‑year‑old girl. The clinical and radiographic evaluation
done during the recall visits at 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months showed a progressive root growth with
apical closure.
Key Words: Amnion, dental pulp necrosis, regenerative endodontics, tooth fractures
