Periodontal Regeneration Using Dental Pulp Stem Cells (DPSCs)

Experimental: Dental pulp stem cells Test sites (n=15) Periodontal regeneration using micro-grafts of Dental pulp stem cells seeded onto collagen sponge Procedure: periodontal regeneration Defects were accessed with the MIST In the test group the obtained micro-grafts enriched in DPSCs were endorsed onto a collagen sponge scaffold (Condress®, Istituto Gentili, Milano, Italy) to form a […]

Synthetic Light-Curable Polymeric Materials Provide a Supportive Niche for Dental Pulp Stem Cells

Dental disease annually affects billions of patients, and while regenerative dentistry aims to heal dental tissue after injury, existing polymeric restorative materials, or fillings, do not directly participate in the healing process in a bioinstructive manner. There is a need for restorative materials that can support native functions of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs), which […]

Dentists Find Tooth Root Pulp Can Become an Alternative Source of Stem Cells

WISDOM IN TEETH A collaboration of dentists and engineers from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) made a discovery that could potentially revolutionize how and where we harvest, preserve, and use stem cells. In a study published in Biomaterials and Biomechanics in Bioengineering, the team led by UNLV biomedical sciences professor Karl Kingsley and […]
