Introduction: Pulp canal obliteration (PCO), is defined as a deposition of hard tissue within the root canal space. This may occur idiopathically or following direct pulp capping or trauma. In such situations, the clinician may be faced to a difficult or impossible to negotiate root canal and there is clearly a potential for a higher frequency of treatment failures than normally is the case. In this complex scenario, the clinician must be prepared to employ different approaches in order to save the tooth, and when an esthetic region is compromised, the efforts should be even more judicious. This report aimed to present and discuss the methods employed in clinical resolutions of two previously complicated pulp canal obliterated cases in maxillary central incisors.
