When the immature tooth undergoes pulpal necrosis secondary to trauma or caries, the result is a very compromised tooth with thin dentinal walls and a wide open apex.
The long-term survival of such teeth is very poor. Pulp regeneration or revascularization may offer better long-term survival on such teeth. This presentation will discuss the treatment of the immature tooth with pulp necrosis and review the techniques and evidence for regeneration and revascularization. The participant will learn the indications for such treatment and will understand the biology of successful treatment.
