Regenerative Endodontics

Regenerative endodontic treatment can offer an alternative to traditional root canal treatment by utilizing biologically-based tissue engineering to restore tooth canals of immature permanent teeth to a healthy state. By replacing the tooth root's damaged pulp tissue with healthy tissue, regenerative endodontics supports the continued development of the tooth root and the surrounding tissues, unlike a traditional root canal procedure that prevents continued tissue development.

The following AAE recommendations are based on best available data at this time and should be only one possible source of information used by clinicians to make treatment decisions. Moreover, given the rapid evolving nature of this field, clinicians should actively review new findings as they become available.
