Special Issue Introduction
The goal of periodontal treatment is to eliminate periodontal pockets, arrest the progression of the disease and regenerate the lost periodontal tissues. Regeneration, in particular, is an ambitious challenge as multiple periodontal tissues, including the alveolar bone proper, root cementum, and periodontal ligament, are damaged by periodontitis. Various regenerative procedures have been proposed, tested and proven effective in the last 4 decades. However, they may be limited to well-defined clinical conditions and only provided by trained specialists in periodontology.
To overcome these shortcomings, tissue engineering has been introduced in the field of periodontal regeneration. The goal of tissue engineering is to develop biological substitutes that may improve the prognosis of periodontally compromised teeth, promoting the formation of new functional periodontal tissues via the synergistic combination of cells, biomaterials, and signaling molecules.
Nowadays, many researchers are treading the path of tissue engineering in periodontology but the transition from basic research to the daily clinical applicability has not been completed yet. The challenge for the future is to incorporate tissue engineering in the development of clinical strategies that may improve, extend and exploit the current effectiveness of periodontal regeneration.
