Apexification

Apexification is a method of dental treatment to induce a barrier in a root with incomplete formation or an open apex of a tooth with necrotic pulp. This is usually the consequence of trauma or cavity on a young or immature permanent tooth.

The apexification procedure will normally requires several monthly appointments to observe any changes induced at the apex of tooth concerned. In these visits, a material known as calcium hydroxide will be placed inside the root canal systems to eliminate infection, stimulate calcification, and achieve an apical barrier seal at the apex of the tooth root.
