- result of removal of injured periodontal ligament tissue next to the root surface by macrophages and osteoclasts
- results in a saucer-shaped cavity on the root surface mostly involving cementum.

What is extrusive luxation?
- partial OUTWARD displacement
- ok prognosis: 90% open, 50-40% closed

- displacement other than axial w/ communication or fracture of alveolar socket
- ok pulp prognosis (worse than extrusive): 90% open, 25% closed
- pulp survival higher though than extrusive for open apices
What is intrusive luxation?
- displacement into alveolar bone w/ communication or fracture of alveolar socket
- poor prognosis: 40% open, 0% closed
What is avulsion?
- complete displacement out of socket (Exarticulation)
- worst pulp prognosis 30 % open, 0% closed
- PDL healing: 40% open, 20% closed
- Must be reinserted quickly (<30 mins) and wet stored (socket, saline, saliva, milk)

How long does it take mature teeth to regain vitality after injury?
What is the treatment for reversible pulpitis?
apexgenisis: vital pulp therapy
What is the treatment for irreversible pulpitis (necrotic pulp)?
- Closed apex: RCT
- Open: apexification: Root end closure & obturation or Regenerative endo
What is apexification?
root end closure to induce root end formation (apical calcific barrier) when pulp is necrotic
