Abstract
ABSTRACT
Stem cell research nowadays is being pursued in the hope of achieving major medical breakthroughs. Scientists are striving to create therapies that rebuild or replace damaged cells. Tissues grown from stem cells that will offer hope to people suffering from various ailments. Regenerative endodontics is a delivery and creation of tissues to replace diseased, missing and traumatized pulp. Stem cells from apical papilla (SCAP's) are important for the formation and regeneration of root dentin. In the recent advance study, the understanding of pluripotent stem cell biology and emerging technologies to reprogram somatic cell to a stem cell-like state are helping stem cell therapies for a range of disorders. Stem cells are present both in the deciduous and permanent pulp tissue. The stem cells present in the pulp tissue can be isolate, cultivated and expanded in vitro. This poster is about the stem cells and how it can be applied in the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases.
