Revascularization of Anterior Teeth: A Case Report

Divya Gupta [7] | Sarang Khajuria [6]

Abstract: Introduction: Anterior teeth in young children are the most prone for trauma, because of their position in the arch and moreover the carefree attitude of children. A tooth fracture at this age, i. e before complete root formation, leads to a non vital tooth that in turn leads to cessation of root formation resulting in wide open apex leading to formation of blunderbuss canal. The treatment of these teeth poses a challenge and the proposed treatment modalities are apexogenesis with calcium hydroxide, apexification with MTA and calcium hydroxide and periapical surgeries. A case report where all these modalities were used to traet the fracture of anterior teeth in a young patient is discussed here. It was concluded that Revascularization is an effective method of inducing maturogenesis in nonvital, immature teeth. However, more clinical trails are needed to establish the final outcome
