The various tissues of the creature body go through normal physiological renewal. The renewing tissues have relatively few ability to restore harm due to disease or trauma. Stem cells (SCs) are undifferentiated cells competent of self-renewal and differentiation into several functional cell types. Stem cell (SC) therapy has a hopeful future for tissue regenerative medicine. However Stem Cell technology is still in its early years, interdisciplinary cooperation is required to attain successful clinical applications. Dental Stem Cells have good accessibility, plasticity, and high proliferative ability. Some types of dental Stem Cells have been identified from adult human dental pulp, human primary exfoliated deciduous teeth, periodontal ligament and dental follicle. Dental stem cells have also establish their use in Forensic dental investigation and anthropology which is an stimulating new area of research. This article throws light on various sources of stem cells, processing techniques in the orofacial region and its clinical applications.
