Description:  An apical plug has typically been used to treat immature permanent necrotic teeth with open apices. This technique involves either the application of long-term calcium hydroxide or immediate placement of a mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) plug. Necrotic immature permanent teeth can be managed by using an MTA apical plug. An MTA apical plug encourages the formation of a calcified barrier at the end of a root canal, which facilitates the vertical condensation of warm gutta percha. An MTA plug is effective and biocompatible, has great sealing ability, and can be performed in one single visit. Despite the ability to provide a seal and allow obturation, these techniques do not result in increased root length or width development. An alternative treatment option for immature permanent teeth with open apices is regenerative endodontic therapy The goal of this treatment alternative is not only to result in healing of any apical lesions, but also to gain root dentin thickness and restore the pulp dentin complex .

Learning Objectives:  After the completion of this session, the  participants  will be able to 

  • Recognize why traditional root canal treatment may not be possible because of trauma or infection.
  • Identify some disadvantages of calcium hydroxide apexification.
  • Identify some advantages & disadvantages  of MTA apexification.
  • Realize some background of regenerative endodontic therapy (RET).
  • Realize some science related to platelet-rich fibrin (PRF).
