Introduction: Revascularization is an alternative treatment for immature necrotic teeth, with biological basis. Unlike techniques of artificial apical barrier, it allows the continuation of root development and recovery of pulp vitality. Objective: To present the importance of diagnosis and treatment plan, and present a treatment protocol that includes pulp revascularization, through a clinical case of an immature necrotic tooth. Case report: After passive instrumentation of root canal walls and medication with calcium hydroxide, bleeding was induced with subsequent clot formation and placement of a MTA barrier. Coronal sealing was performed with composite resin. Results: Clinical and radiographic control revealed that the tooth was asymptomatic and the lesion had disappeared. Conclusion: It was concluded that this treatment promotes thickening of dentin walls, preventing the tooth from being weakened.
