As technology is advancing at a galloping rate, tissue engineering is no longer a fairy-like idea; it is turning out to be a reality. Tissue engineering has developed as the new frontier in the arena of dentistry. New technology will persistently have a major impact on dental practice, from the development of high-speed handpieces to modern restorative materials. Tissue engineering will extensively affect the dental practice significantly within the next 25 years. Regeneration of tissues and organs in humans after damage has remained as a hindrance throughout the antiquity to physicians, dentists, and patients. Hence, it will be in everyone's interest to welcome tissue engineering with open arms, but at the same time, to take it with a pinch of salt.
