Occasionally the young pulp of permanent developing teeth might become infected or necrotic due to carries or trauma. According to the magnitude of pulpal damage different treatment modalities may exist, like direct pulp capping, pulpotomy, apexogenesis or apexification. The therapeutical objectives of the available treatment options are based on the clinical diagnosis of normal pulp, reversibly inflamed pulp, irreversibly inflamed pulp or totally necrotic pulp. The greater the pulp damage of the developing permanent dentition is, the more compromised the prognosis gets. Recently, regenerative endodontic procedures were introduced in order to improve the long term prognosis of the compromised developing permanent teeth by reestablishment of a functional vital tissue that fosters continued root development and immune competency. A paradigm shift towards these biologically based approaches might benefit the young patients by improving the long-term survival of even otherwise hopeless teeth.
The aim of this lecture is to describe the application of specific clinical regenerative endodontic protocols for the treatment of hopeless teeth in children and adults.
