Apexification procedure was performed in thirteen adult patients, involving eighteen maxillary anterior teeth. The root canals were subjected to standard preparations, before filling the canals with calcium hydroxide - propylene glycol paste. The paste was intentionally pushed beyond the apices. Apical hard tissue barrier was noted in fifteen teeth. Three teeth had to be surgically treated. The above observation demonstrates that, successful apexification can also be achieved in adults and that propylene glycol can be used as a vehicle, as it has desirable properties and is well accepted by the tissues.
