Dental Stem Cells

Stem cell technology is showing great potential in medicine and is an emerging field of study in pediatric dentistry. Stem cells found in primary (baby) teeth offer promise in craniofacial repair and regeneration and repair of dental pulp tissue.

According to researcher and meeting presenter Dr. Jacques Nor, D.D.S., Ph.D., M.S., Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences and Endodontics, University of Michigan, laboratory research has demonstrated that stem cells from primary teeth can be used to regenerate dental pulps of permanent teeth in mice. This could be critical to long-term oral health since it may allow us to restore the viability of immature permanent teeth that have become necrotic (dead) due to caries or trauma. Combined with tissue engineering techniques, it is possible that dental stem cells may be used to engineer a complete tooth one day.

Additionally, while most research into dental stem cells has focused on growing other dental tissues, researchers see potential for growing more tissue types for therapeutic use in the future.

For additional information and to speak with Dr. Wong, Dr. Nor or Dr. Morley, please contact Tara Weintraub at 312-240-2861 or tara.weintraub@edelman.com.
