ABSTRACT

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. However, progress in stem cell biology and tissue engineering may present new options for replacing heavily damaged or lost teeth, or even individual tooth structures. The goal of this review is to discuss the potential impact of dental pulp stem cells on regenerative endodontics.

Keywords: Dental pulp complex stem cells, Periodontal ligament stem cells, Stem cells from human-exfoliated deciduous teeth, Stem Cells from apical papilla.
