In the present day, stem cell (SC) research has grown exponentially due to the identification that SC-based therapies have the aptitude to improve the life of patients who are suffering from Alzheimer's disease to cardiac ischaemia and in regenerative medicine i.e. bone or tooth loss. Based on the potential to rescue and/or repair traumatised tissue and restore organ function, various varieties of SCs are being investigated. Different human dental SCs are rich with mesenchymal SCs appropriate for tissue engineering. These SCs can be isolated and grown under distinct tissue culture conditions and are useful in tissue engineering. Summarising the high proliferation rates and the multipotency and accessibility makes the dental SC an excellent resource for tissue regeneration. The present review explains findings in the field of dental SC research and on their potential application in the tissue regeneration.
