Abstract

Objective To present the terapheutical approach to the management of the immature apex and the evolution of materials and techniques. Materials and methods A Medline™ search was performed limited to human studies published in the last 10 years. The keywords searched were apexogenesis, apexification, pulp regeneration, revascularization. Results Apexogenesis and apexification techniques using Calcium hydroxide or MTA give a good success rate. Recent regeneration procedures may put into discussion the opportunity of apexification in non vital elements. Conclusions Calcium hydroxide is the gold standard material used for immature teeth. New technologies are promoting incoming interest for strategies of vitality preservation and pulp regeneration.
