The objective of this report is to describe a surgical treatment in a traumatized tooth presenting pulp canal calcification (PCC) and periapical pathology. Three months after a patient had suffered injuries by luxation in the right central mandibular incisor, complete calcification of root canals was radiographically observed in addition to a radiographic image compatible with apical periodontitis. The chosen treatment was endodontic surgery and apical root sealing with mineral trioxide aggregate endodontic cement. After 4 months, the tooth showed complete apical repair. We concluded that the endodontic surgery is a procedure specifically indicated for cases of impossibility of conventional endodontic treatment, as in teeth with PCC.
