Recent development of biomedical engineering as well as basic biology and medicine has enabled us to induce cell-based regeneration of body tissue assisted with the self-repairing potential tissue or substitute biological functions of damaged organs with cells. For successful tissue regeneration, it is indispensable to give cells an environment suitable for induction of cell-based tissue regeneration. Tissue engineering is a newly emerging biomedical technology to create the environment for tissue regeneration with various biomaterials. This paper overviews recent researches and clinical data about oral tissues regeneration based on tissue engineering briefly explaining the key technologies of tissue engineering.
