ABSTRACT

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that retain the ability to continuously divide and produce progeny cells that can differentiate into various other types of cells. In human body, there are many sources from which the stem cells are derived such as eye, brain, blood from umblical cord, bone marrow, skin and teeth. These stem cells can be derived from embryonic and adult tissues and cultured to form other different cells for regenerative and therapeutic purpose. Five different types of dental stem cells have been isolated from dental soft tissues: dental pulp, apical papilla, dental follicle and periodontal ligament. This article summarizes information available on the different types of dental stem cells and discusses their potential use in regenerative Dentistry
