Can Adults And Children Both Benefit From Regenerative Endodontics?
So far, regenerative endodontic therapies have been used most widely with children, because the roots and tissues of their teeth are still growing and developing, making it easier to bring them back to life. If children suffer from trauma to a tooth during sports or play, it is very important to bring them to see Dr. Kanter as soon as possible (less than 24 hours!), so that she can make sure that the tooth is repaired on the inside as well as the outside. Prompt action will prevent the death of the tooth, infection, and eventually the need for more extensive repair or removal.
The new frontier in regenerative endodontics is working with similar techniques on adult teeth, bringing nerves and other tissues back to life using innovative technologies like lasers and stem cell therapy.
What Is PRF Regeneration?
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, a substance created from a patient’s own blood platelets right in Dr. Kanter’s office. A very small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed into a centrifuge, which separates red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A gel-like membrane is created from the platelets and white blood cells. This membrane is applied to the area in need of healing. This triggers natural regenerative processes, and may be used in many types of dental procedures.
What Is Vital Pulp Therapy?
In traditional root canal treatment the pulp (the living part of the tooth) is completely removed. Vital pulp therapy treats injured or infected tooth pulp with the intention of keeping it alive. Generally this involves several treatments to remove the damaged or infected part of the pulp, protect the remaining pulp from further trauma, and stimulate the growth of new, healthy pulp.
