Regenerative Endodontics

Regenerative dental procedures are a new and evolving field of dental care.  Many advances in tissue engineering are producing dramatic changes in medicine and dentistry.  The main objectives are to restore and replace normal biological function of tissues that have been destroyed by trauma or disease.  In the field of endodontics, these biologically based procedures are being used to promote normal pulp physiologic function and continued root development of young immature teeth affected by trauma, caries or infection.  Your endodontist will discuss if this is an option for your tooth.
