Abstract : Implant dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with replacing lost teeth and the structures that support them with artificial prostheses that are attached (osteointegrated) to the jaw bone. The regeneration of hard dental tissues has become a reality and a top goal in contemporary dentistry with the development of the current idea of tissue engineering approach and the discovery of the potential of stem cells in dentistry. The current review summarises recent developments in stemcell-based regeneration techniques for hard dental tissues and assesses the viability of using growth factors and stem cells in scaffold-based or scaffold-free methods to stimulate the regeneration of the entire tooth or just some of its component parts.

Keywords : Stem Cell, Regeneration, Scaffold- Based Approach, Scaffold- Free Approach, Growth Factor.
