Abstract

Mesenchymal stem cell-mediated tissue regeneration is a promising approach for regenerative medicine for a wide range of applications. The days are not far that human beings by the help of stem cell technologists and medical experts shall regenerate their organs and tissues. There are reported cases of success of regenerating craniofacial structures. This article discusses the use of Stem Cells in Apical Papilla (SCAP) to regrow a human tooth. Also, the article highlights the preference of SCAP over other stem cells of dental origin.
