Recently, undifferentiated stem cells which exist in dental papillae of immature permanent teeth were newly discovered and these stem cells appear to be the origin of ameloblasts associated with the formation of root dentin. When treating immature permanent teeth, the preservation of these stem cells induce the continuous formation of the root. Therefore, it is reported that minimal invasion to periapical region in immature permanent teeth with periapical inflammation resulted in good-healing

In this case, a 10 year-old boy(mandibular right premolar) and a 8 year-old girl(maxillary left premolar) who visited the department of pediatric dentistry at Chosun University Dental Hospital were diagnosed with pulp necrosis and periapical abscess in clinical and radiographic examination. Endodontic instrumentation to the periapical region was limited and MTA(Mineral Trioxide Aggregate) was applied into the pulp canal. The periodic checks showed healing of periapical abscess and the development and growth pattern of roots. In permanent teeth with pulp necrosis and periapical abscess, preservation of pulp and dental papillae in the periapical region showed good prognosis during the periodic examinations. Therefore, a lot of clinical examination and long-term evaluation of conservative pulp treatment in immature permanent teeth are expected to be necessary. Abstract
