Tooth Pulp Regeneration
The ultimate goal of Endodontic treatment is to regenerate the lost nerve tissue and vasculature that has been lost due to the oral infection. Regenerative endodontic treatment is still in the early investigating stages. Regenerative endodontic treatment uses the concept of tissue engineering to restore the root canal physiology to a healthy state, allowing for continued development of the root and surrounding tissue. Dr. Vahdati and Dr. Torabinejad are both heavily involved in the research projects that are focused on the pulp regeneration and they are providing evidence based treatment for patients with teeth that meet the criteria for pulp regeneration.
