POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF DENTAL STEM CELLS
The beauty of stem cells lies in their regenerative potential. There are many tissues in our body which do not repair or regenerate itself when damaged from disease or trauma.
Dental stem cells are multi potent by nature i.e they have the potential to form different types of cells like those of bone, muscle, nerve, fat, pancreas, tooth and cartilage.
Any disease or condition which damages these tissues has the potential to be repaired by dental stem cells. Eg diabetes, damaged heart, stroke, arthritis, grow a new tooth, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease
