Regenerative Endodontics: A Myth Or a Reality?
Management of an open apex in a young patient with a necrotic tooth provides a great opportunity to perform regenerative endodontics to allow continued root formation and reestablishment of a functional pulpal-dentinal complex. This provides a great alternative to non-surgical root canal treatment which is not the ideal treatment for such
cases, or apexification which does not address the thin dentinal root walls; hence leaving the tooth still prone to fracture. This course will describe in detail the process and concepts behind regenerative endodontics and will help prepare the general dentists and or pediatric dentists in correctly identifying and diagnosing these cases and performing regenerative endodontic procedures.
