Revascularization

Revascularization is a procedure completed on children whose pulp tissue has been damaged or infected throughout the root canal system, and the root canal is not completely developed. This procedure is typically completed in two visits. During the first visit the Doctor will clean the root canal and place an interim medicament into the canal to help remove bacteria. At the final visit the Doctor will remove the interim medicament, and initiate revascularization. A specific material is placed over the site of revascularization that will harden and protect the revascularized tissue from pathogens. At this point vascularity is present inside the tooth encouraging the root to continue development. It is important to have the tooth properly restored by a dentist.
