This meta-analysis is intended to evaluate the reliability of evidences published in current regenerative endodontic publications in a critical way. This meta-analysis is used to summarize and analyze the various clinical and radiographic findings associated with nonvital immature permanent teeth which have been treated with regenerative endodontic techniques. We also intend to significantly evaluate the worth of facts provided in the previous published literature. A structured electronic search by authors was undertaken in August 2020 using MEDLINE and PubMed search engine. The chosen parameters studied in this systematic review were presented in flowcharts and were summarized. We observed a good accomplishment rates in terms of survival of the treated tooth and also in resolution of any associated pathology in the apical areas; on contrary, our results in relation to apex closure along with constant root development, our findings from various studies were quiet variable. Regenerative endodontic procedures are constantly being restructured and enhanced to benefit present-day dentistry in all likely ways. Still, many factors that are important for the success of regenerative endodontic treatment outcomes still remain unexplained. There are still numerous gaps in our expertise at the present stage of this study.
