Dens invaginatus is a developmental anomaly resulting from the invagination of the enamel organ into the dental papilla during the soft tissue stage of development. There are three main requirements that need to be followed to achieve successful revascularization; complete disinfection of the root canal; Supplying the canal lumen with the pulp's essential components, including its stem cells, growth factors, and scaffolds, is a precondition for the pulp's regeneration process. This can be accomplished through blood clotting, platelet-rich plasma, and platelet-rich fibrin. introduction of the intracanal matrix to allow tissue growth, and tight seal of the access filling. This case report aims to describe the regenerative endodontics approach in the treatment of an immature permanent tooth with dens invaginatus in the maxillary left central incisor.
