The endodontic regeneration is very challenging because pulp and dentin formation, revascularization and reinnervation can be concomitantly required. Polymer scaffolds constitute keystone of the different endodontic regenerative strategies. Indeed, they provide a solid environment for adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of competent cells incorporated or attracted to the lesion by “cell homing”. Besides, they constitute adequate delivery system of active biomolecules for orchestrating the different steps of endodontic regeneration and the diverse cellular fonctions. Collagen, fibrin, polypeptide, PCL and chitosan are the main types of polymeric endodontic scaffolds. Recently, proposals to associate different polymers have emerged for adding crucial advantages.
