Abstract

Newer scientific technological advancement in dentistry provides an array of projects such as molecular biology, cell culturing, tissue grafting, and tissue engineering. Conventional root canal treatment, apexification with biomaterials, and extractions are the procedures of choice to treat a nonvital tooth. These treatment options do not give predictable outcomes in the regeneration of the pulp tissue. This can be easily achieved by regenerative endodontics wherein the diseased or a nonvital tooth is replaced by a healthy and functional pulp-dentin complex. The rationale for regenerative endodontics follows tissue engineering techniques. This article reviews the shift in regenerative endodontic techniques.
