SP-26 Regenerative Endodontics: A Comprehensive Review on Clinical Protocols and Outcomes

5 (1 vote)

CE Hours: 1.0

Description: Endodontic management of immature permanent teeth with pulpal necrosis is challenging. Regenerative endodontic treatments have been suggested as a treatment modality so that the affected teeth continue with the root development and hard tissue deposition on the dentinal wall and are preserved as long as possible for our young patients. Yet, several variables may affect the outcome of regenerative endodontic treatments. This presentation aims to comprehensively review the advances in foundational research in regenerative endodontics and their impact on clinical protocols and the outcomes of regenerative endodontic treatments. In this presentation, we will critically review two areas: i) We will discuss the recent endeavor on hydrogel scaffolds and biocompatible synthetic materials for regenerative endodontics. The potential application of these advances will also be discussed for practitioners. ii) We will discuss the predictability of clinical success in teeth treated by regenerative endodontics.

    Discuss current research related to regenerative endodontics.
  • Discuss the novel tissue engineering methods in regenerative endodontics
  • List current recommendations for regenerative endodontic treatment protocols and understand the outcomes of clinically treated cases with regenerative endodontic treatments.
