Endodontic regeneration is the accepted treatment for young immature necrotic teeth. The purpose of this treatment is to promote the healing of apical pathosis and further development of the root. Dental trauma can cause a serious complication of external root resorption. Usually these teeth are deemed non-restorable and are extracted or the alternative of decoronation is performed. Our poster presents a new venue for treating such teeth by using the endodontic regeneration technique. This treatment results in healing of the apical pathosis as well as arresting the external root resorption. This results in maintaining the teeth for normal function. These results must be further investigated in randomized control studies.
