Stem cells: The future of periodontal regeneration
Arif Siddique, Surbhi Priyadarshi
Nowadays, dentistry is taking great steps in the field of research and is bringing research into clinical application. The research on stem cells is providing a big hope for the possibility of periodontal regeneration. The stem cells have the property to grow at very fast rate. The stem cells can form specialized dentin, neuronal cells and bone. This property will definitely help in providing better and newer treatment options to the patient. They can help in treating destructed teeth, neuronal injury and can induce new bone formation. In this aspect, the role of stem cells becomes important for periodontal regeneration. The literature was searched using electronic data base from 1978 to 2019. The search was restricted to English language articles, and various in vitro and in vivo studies were included. Google search was also done.
