CURBELO, Sofia; MENESES, Romina; PEREIRA-PRADO, Vanesa  e  TAPIA, Gabriel. Bone regeneration as an example of tissue engineering in dentistry, with an emphasis on the development of scaffolds. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.36, pp.74-86.  Epub 01-Dez-2020. ISSN 0797-0374.

Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary scientific area that has the therapeutic purpose of restoring, replacing, or increasing the functional activities of organic tissues.


This work aims to review the literature on tissue engineering in oral and maxillofacial procedures.


A bibliographic search was conducted in PubMed MEDLINE, Google Scholar, and LILACS, using the terms “stem cells,” “bone regeneration,” and “tissue growth factors.”


In total, 193 positive results were obtained, of which 24 were used for this paper.


Several biomaterials capable of promoting bone neoformation have been described. They need to be adequately manipulated and have the right architecture and achieve the synergy of the various properties.


Scaffolds have the widest uses, and selecting one does not depend on the material itself.

Palavras-chave : tissue engineering; stem cells; bone regeneration; growth factors.
