Regenerative Procedures


Traumatic injury and endodontic infections involve the pulp of children’s permanent teeth while the roots are incompletely formed. Regenerative endodontic procedures have the potential to allow for continuation of root development and are the newest therapeutic approach in the management of incompletely developed permanent teeth. The appropriate treatment modality for your child’s case will be determined by one of our doctors and one of the following protocols may be performed:



The first step in this procedure involves disinfection of the pulp tissues and the application of a triple antibiotic paste. After disinfection the triple antibiotic paste is removed and a biocompatible material – MTA – is used to fill and seal the pulp chamber. A permanent restoration is delivered on top of the MTA to ensure the tooth remains sealed. Successful revasculaization cases result in increased root length, thickening of root walls and root-end closure.
