Traumatic injuries occur commonly in children and adolescents and the prevalence of such injuries has increased over the last decade. Such injuries may result in pulpal exposure, which can endanger tooth vitality. Therefore, the treatment for such injuries should be carefully planned so as to preserve the pulp vitality. Teeth with immature roots pose a great challenge for the clinician and procedures like pulpotomy may prove effective as a treatment strategy. Such procedure may ensure continued root development and apexogenesis. Lasers have varied applications in the dental practice such as oral surgical procedures, cavity preparation, disinfection etc. This article is a case report on the use of diode laser for pulpotomy in a young permanent tooth with traumatically exposed pulp in an 8-year-old male.
