Objective: To present the terapheutical approach to the management of the immature apex and the evolution of materials and techniques. Materials and methods: A Medline™ search was performed limited to human studies published in the last 10 years. The keywords searched were apexogenesis, apexification, pulp regeneration, revascularization. Results: Apexogenesis and apexification techniques using Calcium hydroxide or MTA give a good success rate. Recent regeneration procedures may put into discussion the opportunity of apexification in non vital elements. Conclusions: Calcium hydroxide is the gold standard material used for immature teeth. New technologies are promoting incoming interest for strategies of vitality preservation and pulp regeneration.
