Interest in regrowing pulps is increasing. Case reports and studies have
been published but predictable protocols have not been developed. While periapical
healing is predictable because of canal disinfection, clinical findings are variable
especially regarding root maturation. Histological studies demonstrate connective
tissue and blood vessels rather than pulp and dentin-like or cementum-like tissue but not dentin or cementum. Repair procedures can help retain teeth but currently have no advantages over apexification and apical barrier techniques.
