The human dentition is indispensable for nutrition and physiology. The teeth have evolved for mastication of food. Caries is a common dental problem in which the dentin matrix is damaged. When the caries is deep and the dental pulp is exposed, the pulp has to be removed in many cases, resulting ultimately in loss of the tooth. Therefore, the regeneration of dentin-pulp complex is the long-term goal of operative dentistry and endodontics. The key elements of dentin regeneration are stem cells… CONTINUE READING
