Fig. 9: Use of stem cells for tooth formation in vitro and ex vivo. A tooth germ can be created in vitro after co-culture of isolated epithelial and mesenchymal stem cells. This germ could be implanted into the alveolar bone and finally develop into a fully functional tooth. Fig. 10: Construction of a bioengineered tooth. The association of tooth-derived stem cells with defined scaffolds in the presence of growth factors allows the creation of tooth specific constructs such as crown and root of missing parts of an injured tooth. These biological constructs could be used in dental clinics as substitutes for metal implants, crowns and restorative dental materials.

Conclusion

Application of stem cells in dentistry is limited due to various parameters that are not yet under control such as rejection, cell behavior, appropriate crown morphology and suitable color. Nevertheless, the development of biological approaches for dental reconstruction using stem cells is promising and remains as a challenge for years to come.
