Dental Pulp Regeneration Strategies
Topic: Regenerative EndodonticsLearning Objectives:
- Discuss the basic principles and common strategies for tissue regeneration.
- Evaluate the evidence in current literature on endodontic regeneration procedures.
- Identify the indications of endodontic regenerative procedures.
- Describe recent advances in the regeneration of the pulp/dentin complex.
Regenerative endodontic procedures have been gaining popularity in recent years. These procedures are alternatives to the conventional apexification technique in the treatment of necrotic immature teeth. They are aimed at reestablishing pulpal vitality and encouraging continuous root development. The field of tissue engineering is rapidly advancing; many of the new strategies can potentially be applied to regenerative endodontics to improve the predictability of the regeneration of the dentin/pulp complex. This lecture will review the basic mechanisms and principles of tissue engineering; discuss the current evidence supporting the clinical practice of regenerative endodontic procedures; discuss the recent advances in pulp tissue engineering; explore the potential incorporation of tissue engineering strategies to pulp regeneration; and discuss the future directives of regenerative endodontics.
Half day , three-hour lecture.
