Regeneration

Regenerative endodontics is one of the most exciting developments in dentistry today and endodontists are at the forefront of this cutting-edge research.

Regeneration

What is regeneration?

Regenerative endodontics uses the concept of tissue engineering to restore the root canals to a healthy state, allowing for continued development of the root and surrounding tissue. Endodontists’ knowledge in the fields of pulp biology, dental trauma, and tissue engineering can be applied to deliver biologically based regenerative endodontic treatment of necrotic immature permanent teeth resulting in continued root development, increased thickness in the dentinal walls and apical closure. These developments in the regeneration of a functional pulp-dentin complex have a promising impact on efforts to retain the natural dentition, the ultimate goal of endodontic treatment. 

Benefits
of regeneration

Pain relief

Root canals provide effective relief from severe toothaches caused by infected or inflamed pulp, eliminating discomfort.

Tooth preservation

By treating and removing infected pulp, root canals save natural teeth from extraction, maintaining dental structure.

Improved chewing ability

After a root canal, the treated tooth is restored, allowing for efficient chewing and biting, restoring normal oral function.

Cost-effective solution

While root canals may have initial costs, they are generally more affordable compared to tooth extraction followed by tooth replacement options like implants or bridges.

Are you a good candidate for regeneration?

Children roughly between the ages of 6 & 14
Any tooth in the mouth could be a candidate, as long as its growth has stopped (due primarily to decay or trauma) within the first year to two after eruption.
