Current Evidence-Based Approaches in Endodontic Treatment of Necrotic Immature Teeth

Dental trauma and deep dentine caries may often necessitate vital/non-vital endodontic treatments for immature teeth in children at school age. Many methods have been used in the past for treatment of immature permanent teeth that calls for a root canal treatment. However, the most up-to-date approaches preferred in the treatment of these teeth are; ‘Calcium hydroxide apexification’, ‘Single-step (MTA) apexification’ and ‘Revascularization’. Over the past 15 years of the routine clinical use of revascularization treatment, a significant progress has been recorded in the survival rates of necrotic immature teeth.

The aim of this presentation is to assess the efficacy of different treatment modalities in necrotic immature teeth according to current literature.
