Abstract

In recent times there has been a constant effort to harness the regeneration capacity of certain pluripotent cells to replace the lost part. In the contemporary practise, there has been shift in the paradigm towards maturogenesis than apexification for an immature permanent tooth. Revascularisation is a modality of treatment in which is a part of regeneration. First molar is most susceptible for caries involvement, which may lead to pulpal involvement at an early age. So it becomes imperative to plan a treatment which improves the overall prognosis. One of the most promising modality is revascularisation. Hence we present a case of successful revascularisation in Permanent molar of 7 year old child with necrotic pulp. In present case 18 months follow up has shown fair amount of maturogenesis both clinically and radiographically.

Key words:
Revascularisation, Molar, Immature root, Necrotic pulp
