Tissue Engineering : Future of Pediatric Endodontics Dr. George Kurian Panampally, MDS*, Dr. Vivek M. Patil, MDS**,Dr. Rehan Khan, MDS***, During the last 10–15 years, there has been a tremendous increase in our clinical “tools” (i.e. materials, instruments and medications) and knowledge from the trauma and tissue engineering fields that can be applied to regeneration of a functional pulp-dentin complex. Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary approach that aims to regenerate functional tooth tissue structure based on the interplay of three basic key elements:Stem cells, morphogens and scaffolds. A number of recent clinical case reports have revealed the possibilities that many teeth that traditionally would be treated byapexification may be treated by apexogenesis. Pulpal regeneration after tooth injury is not easy to accomplish, because of the infected pulp requires tooth extraction or root canal therapy. Current treatment modalities offer high levels of success for many conditions; an ideal form of therapy might consist of regenerative approaches in which diseased or necrotic pulp tissues are removed and replaced with healthy pulp tissue to revitalize teeth. This review discusses fundamental concepts of stem cell biology and tissue engineering within the context of regenerative dentistry.

However, many augmentation,5emdogain for periodontal tissue teeth are not restorable because of apical resorption, fracture, incompletely formed roots or carious destruction of coronal structures. A novel augmentation,7 and preclinical trials on the use of approach to restore tooth structure is based on fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) for periodontal biology i.e. regenerative endodontic procedures by tissue regeneration.8,9 A counter argument to the the application of tissue engineering. T issue development of regenerative endodontic procedure engineering is an emerging multi disciplinary field is that although the replaced pulp has potential to that applies the principles of engineering and life revitalize the teeth, it may also become susceptible sciences for the development of biological to further pulp disease and may require retreatment.
substitutes that can restore, maintain, or improve Over the last two decades, tissue engineering has tissue function.1 Regenerative endodontic evolved from science fiction to science. Indeed, procedures can be defined as biologically based isolated clinical case reports are consistent with the procedures, designed to predictably replace concept that certain clinical treatments might evolve damaged, diseased, or missing structures, including into regenerative endodontic procedures.10 dentin and root structures as well as cells of the pulp However, additional translational research is needed dentin complex with live viable tissues preferably to develop predictable clinical regenerative of the same origin that restore the normal procedures. The purpose of this article is to review physiologic functions of the pulp dentin complex.2 the biological principles of tissue engineering and Hermann (1952)3 was the first to carry out the hurdles that must be overcome to develop regenerative endodontic procedure, when he applied calcium hydroxide in vital pulp amputation.

The key elements of tissue engineering are stem cells, morphogens, and a Several, if not all, adult tissues have a subpopulation of stem cells. Examples of such tissues are the bone marrow, brain, skin, muscle, All tissues originate from stem cells. A stem cell is and adipose tissue.16,17 Stem cells have also been defined as a cell that has the ability to continuously found in several dental tissues. One of the first divide to either replicate itself (self replication) or tooth-related stem cell types was found in the pulp produce specialized cells that can differentiate into of permanent teeth and was named dental pulp stem various other types of cells or tissues.14 cells(DPSCs).18 In addition, stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED), stem cells from the apical papilla, dental follicle progenitor cells, and periodontal ligament stem cells have also been characterized. Mechanistic studies focused on these cells are certainly improving our understanding of tooth development. In addition, this knowledge has The plasticity of stem cell defines its ability been applied in translational studies that aim at the to produce cells of different tissues. Stem cells are use of these stem cells in clinical settings where the commonly subdivided into totipotent, pluripotent regeneration of dental and craniofacial tissues is and multipotent categories according to their To accomplish endodontic regeneration, the applications depends on their proliferation rate, most promising cells are autologous postnatal stem differentiation potential, and accessibility. For cells, because these appear to have the minimum example, when bone marrow stem cells were disadvantages. Postnatal stem cells have been found compared with DPSCs, DPSCs presented favourable in almost all body tissues, including dental tissues.

And finally, differentiation toward specific cell fates and to SHED cells have the unique advantage of being coordinate cellular processes that result ultimately retrievable from naturally exfoliated teeth, which in the generation of a new tissue or organ via tissue can be considered a “disposable” source of postnatal engineering-based approaches. More specifically, human tissue. Collectively, these studies suggest there are many similarities between morphogenic that the tooth constitutes an attractive source of factors regulating dentinogenesis and the factors stem cells that can potentially be useful in a wide that regulate reparative dentinogenesis.It can be easy to conclude that the field of dental tissue Recent evidence suggests that stem cells are engineering can benefit tremendously from studies localized in areas with low oxygen tension.
