Apexogenesis is a procedure where vital tissue within the tooth is maintained to facilitate continued development of the immature root. A portion of inflamed pulp is removed and filled with a bioceramic material that maintains vitality in the roots. Healthy tissue then allows for continued root development. When root development is complete, a traditional root canal can be performed.
Signs and Symptoms
You may experience pain, cold sensitivity, or no symptoms at all. Your general dentist may detect deep decay in an immature tooth.
