Abstract

Human teeth are most non-invasive  and natural sources of stem cells. The undifferentiated body tissue precursors that are capable of differentiating into specialized cells are called as stem cells, these cells have the capacity to divide through mitosis to produce more of stem cells. These stem cells are said to be highly potential in regenerating tissues that are lost . The Tissue regeneration potentiality of stem cells in the field of medicine hopes to repair heart damage, baldness, deafness, blindness, vision impairment, muscle damage, diabetes and other related disorders. etc. whereas in dentistry, the dental stem cells [ stem cells obtained from intraoral region]  have potential to repair bone loss or any soft tissue loss and it can be effectively used in maxillofacial reconstruction since it provides better physiological structure and functions. Nowadays these dental stem cells are studied  to be used for whole tooth regeneration and even for treatment of  mucosal lesions.
