In the last decade, tissue engineering has undergone enormous expansion in the fields of regenerative medicine and
dentistry. In response to mechanical and chemical injuries, the dentine-pulp complex possesses a regenerative ability due to a speci?c
population of mesenchymal stem cells, which have been widely described in literature. The postnatal dental pulp also contains
progenitor stem cells that participate in dental regeneration. Knowledge of the regenerative potential of these cells is important in terms
of understanding and applying their biological and chemical characteristics.
Through the isolation and exploration of the
regenerative abilities of these stem cells, new therapeutic possibilities may be possible, opening the way for improving paediatric
