Recognizing the far-reaching consequences of our interventions would help us select more holistic treatment options that not only look at the present well being of the child but also that of the future adult. A conscious effort is required in selecting Minimally Invasive Restorative modalities when Restoring Young Permanent Teeth. It is also well recognized that performing pulp therapy in an Immature Permanent Tooth poses a unique set of challenges.

Mastering these minimally invasive techniques will ensure superior long-term prognosis for the tooth through adulthood.
