Tissue engineering is an emerging domain. Very soon it will be possible to produce a complete vital tooth from a single stem cell. Pulp revascularization is based on the ability of residual pulp and apical and periodontal stem cells to differentiate. These cells are highly potent to create a highly vascularized and a vital conjunctive tissue, which can colonize the available pulp space. This technique is specifically indicated for teeth with incomplete root formation as a substitute for the traditional treatment of apexification, which consists of placing calcium hydroxide paste into the root canal for a stipulated period of time in order to trigger the formation of a calcified barrier. Therefore, there has been an indefinite search for alternatives which allow the full development of immature teeth. Revascularization is a recent treatment module for immature necrotic permanent teeth.

Keywords: Tissue engineering, Stem cell, Pulp revascularization, Apexification, Immature teeth.
