The Role of Stem Cells in Dental Implants

Dentistry has become nowadays an evolved science which offers plenty of possibilities of evolving and adapting to every human’s needs. More and more people wish a beautiful attractive smile which can dazzle all those who they come in contact with. That is why, scientists have developed new programs of performing dental operations, and programs which include stem cells.

A procedure using stem cells may provide a more thorough regeneration of periodontal tissue around dental implants. Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth, but an implant’s ability to react to patient growth, pressure from chewing, and future orthodontic work is diminished if it is not surrounded by sufficient periodontal tissue.

In this study, the authors engineered this periodontal tissue in a fresh socket of a goat animal model. Each of 5 goats was fitted with 2 titanium implants immediately after tooth removal. A poly scaffold was fitted around each implant, but the control received only the scaffolding. The experimental implant received scaffolding seeded with bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

All implant sites showed some level of tissue development at 10 days after the operation. At one month after, the control side showed no signs of tissue development, whereas the experimental side had developed cement, bone, and periodontal ligament, the 3 tissues required for regeneration of periodontal tissue.

Past studies have demonstrated positive results with bone marrow-derived MSCs in periodontal defects around natural teeth. Others have shown promising results without bone marrow-derived MSCs, using progenitor cells from the remaining ligament in certain limited situations. But unlike past studies, this report demonstrates that using bone marrow-derived MSCs can ensure a more thorough, adaptable regeneration of periodontal tissue with titanium implants.

So it is that as the technology evolves, people want more and more from everything. Even if it comes to clothes, computers, mobile phones or smashing cars, smile has become one of the main issues everyone wants to deal with in the nowadays society. That is why, the stem cells implants proved to be a strong, healthy implant for all the ones who want to try a new fabulous look and keep their mouth healthy and clean!

New technologies based on Botox have started to appear in what concerns dental treatments. It is injected into the facial muscles and, within a few hours, it attaches itself to the nerve endings of the motor muscles, thereby affecting the nerve transmission to these muscles. It takes anywhere from 2 to 10 days to block the nerve transmitters which innervate the muscles into which it was injected. In this respect, the procedures dentists can use in order to provide their patients a good qualitative work are numerous and are waiting to be put in practice by everyone who cares about himself and about his forwarded success!
