Course #112 – "Pulp Regeneration – Stem Cells in Endodontics"

Instructor: Joseph C. Stern, D.D.S. 
Member and presenter for the AAE. Awarded the AAE/DENTSPLY award for his presentation. Currently on the faculty of Touro College of Dental Medicine/New York Medical College. Dr. Stern maintains a private practice in Clifton, NJ.


Synopsis: What will dentistry look like in 20 years? The answer is not quite so simple but one thing for sure is that regenerative endodontics will be part of that equation. Being a relatively new field within the realm of endodontics, pulp regeneration has not garnered a lot of exposure. There is still a lot unknown about this treatment modality. The exciting aspect is, despite what we still don’t know, this treatment has shown very promising results. There have been numerous case series published to date, showing very high success rates for a relatively new procedure. The aim of this lecture is to delve into this topic and discuss what exactly pulp regeneration is all about and when it would be appropriate to offer this procedure to your patients.

After taking this course, the participant will have a greater understanding of pulp regeneration and be able to answer the following questions:

1. What is regenerative endodontics?

2. What is Tissue engineering?

3. What is the biological basis for regenerative endodontic therapy?

4. What are the clinical considerations for regenerative endodontic procedures?

5. What will pulp regeneration look like in the future?
