The immunocompetence and regeneration potential of the dental pulp and its surrounding apical tissues have been investigated extensively in the field of endodontics. While research on the role of non-coding RNAs in these tissues is still in its infancy, it is envisioned that improved understanding of the regulatory function of ncRNAs in pulpal and periapical immune response will help prevent or treat endodontic disease. Of particular importance is the role of these RNAs in regenerating the dentin-pulp complex. In this review, we highlight recent progress on the role of non-coding RNAs in the immune response to endodontic infection as well as the repair and regenerative response to injury.
