Prof. Gustavo De Deus

Dr. Gustavo De-Deus received his DDS degree in 1996 and his Certificate in Endodontics in 1998 from Rio de Janeiro State University. In 2004, Dr. De-Deus received his Master Science degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro and his PhD was done at Rio de State University in Endodontics (2009).
Dr. De-Deus has more than 200 scientific studies published (~120 studies in the JOE and IEJ) and lectures internationally on Endodontic Infection, Single-visit Endodontics, MTA, Instrumentation Techniques, Irrigating Solutions, Root-Filling materials and Contemporary Endodontic Treatment. His studies have received over 3,500 citations in the Google Scholar database up to May2016
He is associate Editor for Root Fillings studies and Biomaterials of the International Endodontic Journal. Dr. De-Deus is Adjunct Professor from Federal Fluminense University. Dr. De-Deus maintains a private practice limited to Endodontics in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil since 1999

Prof. Kerstin Galler


Kerstin Galler obtained her degree in dentistry from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich in 2000. She worked in Private Practice until 2002 and then joined the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Periodontology at the University of Regensburg, Germany. She received post-doctoral training at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston from 2004 to 2006, and earned her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Rice University in Houston in 2009.

Dr. Galler is currently Associate Professor, Deputy Head and Leader of the section for Endodontology and Dental Traumatology at the University of Regensburg. Her time is divided between clinical work with focus on endodontology and conservative dentistry, teaching as senior lecturer and clinical instructor, and research. Her research group works on tunable hydrogel scaffolds and dental stem cells for dental pulp tissue engineering and regenerative endodontics, on dentin matrix proteins and on biofilm-associated reactions of the pulp tissue.  

Dr. Galler was President of the Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group of IADR in 2013/14, has led the committee for the ESE Position Statement on Revitalization and has been involved in national and international committees on Vital Pulp Treatment. She has published numerous articles in the field of pulp biology and dental pulp tissue engineering, received several awards for her scientific work and has lectured extensively nationally and internationally in clinical as well as scientific meetings. 

The Dental Pulp – Vital Pulp Treatment, Revitalization and Regeneration


To maintain pulp vitality is an essential goal in dentistry. With advances in the fields of pulp biology and regenerative medicine, more biology-based treatment approaches are considered today. In the case of reversible pulpitis or traumatic pulp exposure, vital pulp treatment is indicated and shows satisfactory success rates. In the case of pulp necrosis, new treatment protocols exist for teeth with incomplete root formation, where revitalization is a viable alternative to an MTA plug. With this approach, repair can be induced, but not true regeneration, thus future perspectives for dental pulp regeneration based on tissue engineering strategies will be discussed.


Trauma-associated Root Resorption – Mechanisms, Diagnostics and Therapies

Root resorption is a common complication after dental trauma. If detected late or untreated, these can lead to tooth loss and/or localized growth arrest of the alveolar bone. The complex patterns of traumatic injuries to teeth as well as the complex etiology of root resorption make it difficult for the practitioner to assess the risk, to prevent, detect and correctly treat this phenomenon. This lecture will highlight the types of traumatic injuries associated with root resorption, classify the types of resorption, specify etiological factors, explain underlying mechanisms in tissue responses after traumatic impact and go over therapeutic measures.
