New methods are developing to preserve your teeth so the stem cells can be used later.
So far, dental stem cells have successfully been used to regrow jaw bone and to treat periodontal disease.
Researchers and doctors are working in the regenerative medicine arena with the goal of improving treatment or therapies for:
1. Tooth loss and periodontal disease
2. Skeletal bone loss/fractures
3. Muscular Dystrophy
4. Parkinson’s Disease
5. Spinal Cord Injury
6. Type 1 Diabetes
9. Heart attacks
