Regenerative Treatment

Regenerative endodontic treatment is an innovative approach for treating infected immature teeth. It utilizes tissue engineering to allow for better long-term prognosis for the tooth. The goal is to stimulate the body’s natural cells to widen and lengthen immature roots.

Signs and Symptoms

This condition is detected with an x-ray typically in young patients (between ages 4 to 18) or related to teeth that have experienced trauma.

Pre-Op Instructions

We will discuss the procedure in detail with you once the initial exam is done so you know exactly what to expect. You should not take pain medication 4-6 hours before your scheduled appointment to avoid masking any symptoms when we test the area.

Post-Op Instructions

Regenerative therapies require more frequent follow-up visits to monitor health of the tooth over time.
