Abstract

Revascularization is a treatment procedure that promotes the apexogenesis of a necrotic immature permanent tooth. This case report presents a successful management of a 9 year old male patient with a necrotic, immature maxillary right first premolar, via revascularization of the tooth. This procedure can be considered a promising approach over traditional methods.
