Description

The dental professional will play an important role in both the recovery and future use of stem cells in dental and medical regenerative and personalized therapies. We now stand at the threshold of a potential revolution in medical treatment for diseases and disorders in which organs cease to function properly. Many other disorders, such as stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer's disease, cannot presently be treated by organ transplantation. Stem cell-based therapies are being investigated and many are at the clinical trial phase for the treatment of numerous conditions, including neurodegenerative conditions, liver disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, and for nerve regeneration following brain or spinal cord injury. As these clinical studies continue to advance in the years ahead, it is widely accepted that in order to avoid autoimmune rejection from donor tissues, while simultaneously maximizing on therapeutic efficacy, stem cells will be used to generate a individualized treatment for a specific patient. The emerging field of “Personalized Medicine” is a popular topic in the media and generally refers to new medical technologies derived from a patient’s own stem cells. Within the context of Adult Dental Stem Cells, recent findings and scientific research supports the therapeutic use of the extremely potent mesenchymal stem cells found within the healthy pulp of deciduous and permanent teeth, as well as other accessible tissues harvested from the oral cavity. Their use can be applied to a multitude of regenerative and personalized medical therapies. Stem cells will be used in dentistry for the regeneration of dentin and/or dental pulp, biologically viable scaffolds will be used for the replacement of orofacial bone and cartilage, and defective salivary glands will be partially or completely regenerated. While the promise of the immense scope and magnitude that stem cell therapies will have upon the population will only be fully realized in the future, Dental Professionals know that the critical time to act is now. The available opportunities to recover and cryopreserve their patients’ dental stem cells will have the greatest future impact if seized while their patients are young and healthy.
