Revitalization and Regenerative Endodontics

Regenerative endodontic treatments are next-generation treatments. Recent scientific advances in material technology, molecular biology and regenerative medicine have convinced dentists to apply these technologies to modern endodontology.

This course will review and discuss the biological bases of pulp regeneration, current clinical protocols of regenerative endodontic treatments and clinical cases.

Learning Objectives
  • Evidence based regenerative endodontics
  • Tissue engineering of the dentine-pulp complex
  • Cell homing, cell-based and cell free approaches
  • Regenerative endodontic procedures of immature and mature teeth
  • Blood clot and platelet concentrates (PRF, CGF); rich source of autologous cytokines and growth factors
  • Clinical key elements for regenerative treatments:
    • Considerations and concepts of case selection
    • Root canal instrumentation
    • Irrigation and disinfection
    • Application of blood clot and platelet concentrates
    • Biomaterials
*Each attendee will have the opportunity to do revitalization treatment of immature and mature teeth on extracted teeth model.
