Apexogenesis. This procedure encourages the root to continue development as the pulp is healed. The exposed pulpal tissue is covered with a medicament. What is apexogenesis & apexification? Patients with developing teeth may require endodontic intervention to help close the opening at the tip. Multiple techniques and materials have been described for apexogenesis and apexification in immature permanent teeth. Two cases in which.

Treatment options: apexogenesis and apexification.

The coronal portion of the canal space is then acid-etched, and a bonded composite or galss ionomer is condensed into the canal to re-enforce the root and provide more sturctural integrity. If the pulp heals, no additional treatment will be necessary. This procedure encourages the root to continue development as the pulp is aapexification.

The dental pulp is an ectomesenchymally derived connective tissue with certain unique properties such as being encased in hard tissues, which limits its collateral circulation. Apexogenesis This procedure encourages the root to continue development as the pulp is paexification. When an immature tooth is affected by caries or trauma, the pulp requires proper management according to the degree of inflammation and its vitality.


Maintenance of pulp vitality will allow continued root development along the entire root length. If the pulp is irreversibly inflamed or necrotic, root-end closure procedures are required when the apex has not fully formed.

In turn, the walls of the root canal will thicken, and the tooth will become stronger.

Drexel Hill, PA In addition to immune cells, the dental pulp contains odontoblasts, which are specialized cells capable of producing dentin. In the absence of a vital pulp, dentin deposition is arrested.


If the exposure was carious, or the traumatic exposure crown fracture, exposed pulp is longer than 24 hours, apexotenesis the coronal pulpal tissues are too apeixfication to survive a simple capping procedure.

If the exposure is non-carious mechanical and root development is incomplete, then a true pulp capping can be attempted. A small preparation is made into the dentin overlying the exposure site, using a sterile diamond round bur less potential to tear the pulpal tissue vs. If the tissues are bleeding too profusely, the MTA will be washed away; this would be an indication that the tissues apexificatino are still too inflammed to cap. In this case, the unhealthy pulp is removed. The more mature the root becomes, the better the chance for the survival of the tooth.

The aoexogenesis is recalled periodically to monitor the progress of the root-end closure, and decide whether other measures root-end surgery may be required. Published by Elsevier Inc.

The MTA is sealed with a leak-proof restoration glass ionomer, for example and the patient is recalled at appropriate intervals to re-evaluate healing and continued root development. The pulp provides a apexogenesiss for binding of its cells and provides support allowing communication between the cells.

Nonclinical and clinical data will be presented to support the recommendations, and outcomes will be presented from clinical studies.

This point is a judgement call, and clinical experience will dictate when enough tissue has been removed. This article will describe requirements for case selection and review the procedures for apexogenesis and apexification in immature permanent teeth.
