Aim: This case report presents the healing potential of MTA along with its properties of bone formation and apexification. A cystic lesion was successfully resolved with the use of MTA and the follow up proves success. In cases of combined issues of resorption, abscess, cystic lesion and open apices, MTA seems to be the material of choice.
Summary: Access was prepared, biomechanical preparation was done and medicament was placed. Thereafter an MTA plug was made and the canals were obturated. MTA discovery has provided the clinicians with a wonder material which can help to manage multi problem related cases efficiently and successfully.

Keywords: Apexification, Mineral Trioxide Aggregate, Non Surgical Healing, Obtura, Periapical Cyst.
