Abstract:

 Regeneration of oral tissues is a challenging research because of the difficulty to reproduce the oral microenvironment. Many studies propose the invitro possibility to regenerate the tooth, using different techniques, mainly based on stem cells. The present lecture will describe the current literature and propose a new technique to regenerate teeth and periodontal tissues through Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPS)

Introduction:

 The loss of teeth can bring to partial of total edentulism,  a condition that implies a lower quality of life in the patients, both from physiological point of view. In the past many surgical techniques have been proposed to restore the missing tissues: teeth, gums and bone. From extraoral bone harvesting, to the use of bone substitutes, gingival grafting and tooth regeneration. In particular regenerating tissues of tooth has been well described and proposed in many studies, even if an in vitro model currently doesn’t exist. Further protocols will bring to the regeneration of tooth in vivo, giving to our patient the possibility to restore their tissues without surgical operations in a mini- invasive way.
