Reg Endo Then and Now – Ep. 29
This episode features Dr. Tatiana Botero, former chair of the Regenerative Endodontics committee (REC), and Dr. Elizabeth Perry, former Board liaison for REC and current AAE District I director, in a captivating share-all conversation about RegEndo. They outline the basic definition and differentiate between regeneration and reparative endodontics, tying in classic and current literature and drawing a timeline from where these publications have led the field to what we can expect in the future. With our Regendo advocate hats on, we talk databases and data analysis, and encourage all members to contribute and submit their Regendo cases. Drs. Botero and Perry brilliantly speak on the updated protocols for Regendo and touch on factors a clinician should consider when selecting cases — such as etiology and status of the apex. This discussion bridges lab and clinical practice, and covers management of possible complications and updated coding hacks. The “pulp fiction” phenomenon that pulp and dentin can be regenerated in the canal is a reality that is here to stay!
