ABSTRACT

Revacularization of the pulp in a necrotic, infected immature tooth with apical periodontitis was attempting several years. Revasculization of partially necrotic pulp in an immature tooth is based on the concept that vital dental stem cells can survive pulpal necrosis. Revascularization procedure obtains longer and thicker roots in teeth with necrotic pulp diagnosis. Pulp revascularization for immature permanent molars can be possibly applied on cases having difficulty to use conventional root canal treatment due to abnormally thin root canal wall or severe root curvature. Also,when an uncooperative patient does not agree with sedative treatment the revascularization can be useful. And a patient with disability who is barely cooperative can be another indication of this treatment. In this case report, pulp revascularization using triple-antibiotics, metronidazole, ciprofloxacine and minocycline,was applied on the immature first permanent molar infected by caries.
