 # The biggest advantage of pulp revascularization in endodontics is:
A. Achieving continued root development
B. No additional material such as TCP or MTA is required
C. No obturation is needed
D. After control of infection, it can be completed in a single visit


The correct answer is A. Achieving continued root development.

Revascularization is a new treatment method for immature (open apex) necrotic permanent teeth. This technique allows the growth of root even when the pulp is necrotic. This helps in strengthening and avoiding damage to the remaining thin and fragile walls of the immature apex. The main aim of this technique is stimulating the residual apical pulp stem cells which are able to survive due to the abundant blood supply in the open apex cases.

Revascularization procedure aids in:
- Stimulation of odontoblasts or undifferentiated mesenchymal cells at the periapex
- Deposition of the calcific material at the apex as well as lateral dentinal walls
- Normal maturation of the entire root
