Current Approachies In Regenerative Endodontic Therapies

The recent regenerative endodontic therapies are based on the case reports presented in 2001 and 2004 on which regenerative procedures are applied to the immature teeth with pulp necrosis and periapical lesion, are accepted as the keystone of the regenerative therapy approches. The main approach of the regenerative treatment protocols are based on the stem cells' regeneration potential which are considered to exist at the apical portion of the immature, non-vital tooth apex and considered to get into the root canal wit blood clot when instrumented. The expactation from the treatment is the increase in root dentin thickness and apical closure following the decrease in clinical symptoms. Even in this sense, revascularization procedures are defined as the novel treatment protocols which can be replaced with the apexification procedures. However, the recovery duration as the achievement of the root end development of necrotic, immature teeth after revascularization, makes think apexogenesis additionally to apexification. In this section, treatment protocols, materials and healing process of revascularization will be presented.
