The dental pulp has the characteristic of being completely the nonmineralized a part of a mineralized tooth. This tissue is surrounded via a strong shelllike complicated shape that includes dentin and teeth within the crown and cementum within the root. Like maximum connective tissues, the dental pulp is vascularized and innervated, which represent critical purposeful differences between the crown and the root. it’s also a reservoir of structural fi broblasts (named pulpoblasts long in the past via Louis Baume). The pulp complexity is multiplied through the presence of progenitors (or stem cells) implicated in pulp repair and regeneration.  Infl ammatory immune cells are worried with the destruction of pathogens, cell particles (apoptotic our bodies), and/or destructive molecules. 

Altogether, the heterogeneous cell colonies restore the reparative functions of the dental pulp and therefore the biological approaches of pulp therapies. As an alternative for the surgical or chemical ablation of this tissue and for a constrained size of the lesion, pulp capping with biomolecules has been a hit. in the case of a more advanced dental destruction, it comes out these days that critical pulp regeneration is our subsequent goal. The formation/regeneration of an artifi cial pulp may be accompanied via the development of a homogeneous mineralization, sealing the root canal.
