The notion that teeth contain stem cells is based on the well-known repairing ability of dentin after injury. Dental stem cells have been isolated according to their anatomical locations, colony-forming ability, expression of stem cell markers, and regeneration of pulp/dentin structures in vivo. These dental-derived stem cells are currently under increasing investigation as sources for tooth regeneration and repair. Further attempts with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and embryonic stem… 

Stem Cell-Based Dental Tissue Engineering

The objective of this study was to review the literature of stem cell research concerning fields relevant for dentistry and stem cell markers such as STRO-1 were used for the characterization and isolation of stem cells.

Dental Tissue — New Source for Stem Cells

This review will focus on the new findings in the field of dental stem cell research and on their potential use in the therapy of various disorders.

Dental Pulp Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering Strategies for Clinical Application on Odontoiatric Field

The present chapter is to define the main strategies to isolate dental pulp stem cells, their characterisation and differentiation, tissue enngineering strategies and clinical applications for the creation of artificial tissue useful in odontoiatric field.

Current Applications and Future Prospects of Stem Cells in Dentistry.

The role of dental stem cells as a promising tool for regeneration of individual tissue types like dentine, pulp and even an entire functional tooth is discussed.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells Derived from Dental Tissues vs. Those from Other Sources: Their Biology and Role in Regenerative Medicine

This article will review the isolation and characterization of the properties of different dental MSC-like populations in comparison with those of other MSCs, such as BMMSCs.

Dental stem cells and bone repair

This review will discuss current research surrounding the development of dental stem cells for bone augmentation and repair in periodontal bone defects.

Neural Crest Stem Cells from Dental Tissues: A New Hope for Dental and Neural Regeneration

Some important aspects of tissue regeneration by cell therapy are discussed and some advantages that EMSCs from dental tissues provide for dental and neural regeneration are pointed out.



Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Mediated Functional Tooth Regeneration in Swine

This work transplanted both human SCAP and periodontal ligament stem cells to generate a root/periodontal complex capable of supporting a porcelain crown, resulting in normal tooth function and recovery of tooth strength and appearance.

Stem-cell-based Tissue Engineering of Murine Teeth

Results provide a significant advance toward the creation of artificial embryonic tooth primordia from cultured cells that can be used to replace missing teeth following transplantation into the adult mouth.

Dental pulp stem cells.

The efficacy of mesenchymal stem cells to regenerate and repair dental structures.

Collectively, these data revealed the presence of distinct MSC populations associated with dental structures with the potential of stem cells to regenerate living human dental tissues in vivo.

Tooth regeneration from newly established cell lines from a molar tooth germ epithelium.

Isolation and characterization of postnatal stem cells from human dental tissues.

Results indicate that MSCs exist in various tissues of the teeth and can differentiate into osteoblasts, adipocytes, and other kinds of cells with varying efficiency.

In Vitro Bone Production Using Stem Cells Derived From Human Dental Pulp

Evidence that dental pulp is extremely rich in stem cells, which were c-kit+/CD34+/STRO-1+/ CD45−, capable of differentiation toward several stromal-derived differentiated cells and mainly osteoblasts is provided.

Comparison of Stem-cell-mediated Osteogenesis and Dentinogenesis

This study provided direct evidence to suggest that osteogenesis and dentinogenesis mediated by BMSSCs and DPSCs, respectively, may be regulated by distinct mechanisms, leading to the different organization of the mineralized and non-mineralized tissues.
