PULP REVITALIZATION PROCEDURES IN IMMATURE AND MATURE TEETH
Friday, 11 Nov
Regenerative endodontic therapy is a biologically driven procedure designed to replace the damaged tissue including dentin, root structures, as well as cells of the pulp-dentin complex. Endodontic science today benefits from the latest technologies and uses all the evidence-based knowledge to define novel clinical principles and practices aiming to mimic the nature itself like never before. Parallel to the advancements in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative Endodontics the strategies in pulp regeneration are improved.
The aim of the current lecture is to discuss the revitalization procedures both for mature and immature teeth based on personal case reports with long-term follow-up. The advantages and the limitations of extending the indication and scope of revitalization procedures to mature teeth will also be discussed.
- To review the importance of pulp-dentin complex regeneration,
- To review the current literature in the pulp revitalization procedures,
- To review different clinical cases and regeneration protocols,
- To review the future perspective for revitalization of both mature and immature teeth.
