10.30 - 11.30 | The Open Apex: from Traditional Apexification Techniques to the Regenerative/ReVITALIZING Endodontic Procedures

Elisabetta Cotti

The necrotic tooth with “Open apex” is a condition which represents a treatment challenge in endodontics. It is a    clinical situation which may be the consequence of:  1) trauma which has caused the interruption of the development of the pulpal-dentinal complex in  immature teeth;  2) trauma which leaves the teeth in an immature stage, but is  discovered in the adult age; 3)  complex anatomies such as “dens in dente” 4) Resorptive defects that create irregularly opened apices.  Current treatment options and techniques include traditional apexification, MTA apexification, and the latest trends that are represented by the so-called regenerative/reparative procedures.

The different options will be discussed in the background of clinical experience and literature.

Learning Objectives

  1. At conclusion participants should be able to consider “classic apexification” as a good and predictable treatment standard and the best up to date  protocols to use it
  2. At conclusion participants should be able to recognize the use of “MTA/bioactive cements pre-formed apical barrier” as an alternative treatment  which is becoming more predictable after  15 years of  clinical experience, and  the best protocols on how to use it
  3. At conclusion participants should be able to apply open apex treatment to resorbed teeth
  4. At conclusion participants should be able mix the available techniques to apply them to unusual clinical situations
  5. At conclusion participants should be able to consider the possibility to attempt “ regenerative procedures”  in  immature teeth
