“Regenerative dentistry” --- is what we are all heading towards, and it is more of an evolving Sub specialty.

All across the globe, tissue engineering seems to be the future that promises greater medicine. Liver, heart, cornea and windpipe have been manufactured in labs and grown within recipient bodies. Tissue engineering is a truly multi disciplinary subject requiring the skill set of a Chemist, a Material Engineer to design and build organ scaffold, a Physicist to model tissue growth and a Biologist to monitor tissue growth.

The future of dentistry is the incorporation of similar technology within the field of dentistry which aims at either regeneration of teeth in dental practices or the use of various scaffolds that can be implanted into existing teeth to regenerate tissues within.

Various therapies ranging from stem cell banking, inject-able scaffold delivery, 3d printing, and genetic engineering are now available. Most of these therapies rely on stem cells and growth factors. Interestingly enough even teeth contain stem cells that are noninvasive and mostly mesenchymal in origin. Moreover, they do not produce any immune reaction and are capable of differentiating into bone, cartilage and adipose tissue. Hence, they can have a wide range of applications and can change the concept from “Replacement--to-- egeneration”

Dentistry is advancing in the field of periodontal regeneration, with options of repair and replacement of mineralized & soft tissue with enhanced wound healing. In the field of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, regeneration of bone defects, injuries, diseases, craniofacial constructions are becoming more predictable. Even Salivary gland dysfunctions and Tm joint diseases are is becoming more treatable conservatively.

Endodontic applications range from stem cell fillings, pulp regeneration, and immature root development to replacement of traumatized tissue.

On the other side, we need to update ourselves about emerging fields and technologies. It requires immense comprehensive evidence based data to actually decide on the success of these engineered components and their clinical applications.
