Dental stem cells have the characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells, which under certain appropriate conditions can differentiate into multiple cells such as osteocytes, chondrocytes, hepatocyte and neuronal like cells. DSCs are consisting of odontogenic stem cells mainly include dental pulp stem cells, periodontal ligament stem cells, stem cells from deciduous teeth, stem cells from apical papilla, as well as dental follicle progenitor cells. DSCs have been widely used in the field of preclinical research, including nervous system diseases, oral diseases, immune diseases, heart and lung diseases, etc. This review will focus on the clinical studies regarding DSCs in tissue regeneration.
