Abstract

Dental Pulp Revascularization of an Open-apex Maxillary Central Incisor Using Autologous Concentrated Growth Factor in a fifth decade patient

This report presents a case of revascularization of an open-apex maxillary central incisor in a 46-year-old patient using concentrated growth factor (CGF). After disinfection protocol, the apical foramen was mechanically enlarged, and autologous CGF gel was prepared and placed into the root canal to a level close to the cemento-enamel junction. The follow-up evaluation confirmed the clinical success of the treatment with restoration of tooth sensation within 6 months. The previous flat-shaped apex morphology of the tooth changed into a more rounded shape but with no real change in the length of the root or in the size of the canal. This case report shows the potential of using root canal revascularization technique to treat non-vital teeth in elder patients with the advantage of restoration tooth sensation. The promising role of the concentrated growth factor in dental pulp regeneration is also highlighted.
