Tooth Pulp Stem Cells Promote Regeneration of Spinal Cord Injury
Easily accessible stem cells taken from tooth pulp are capable of stimulating long-term regeneration of nerves in damaged spinal cords, scientists report. A team at Nagoya UniversityGraduate School of Medicine transplanted tooth stem cells into rats with completely severed spinal cords. The stem cells not only promoted the regeneration of transected axons by directly inhibiting multiple axon growth inhibitors, they also prevented damage-induced apoptosis of neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes as well as differentiated into mature oligodendrocytes to replace cells that were lost. The onset of regeneration was evident during the acute phase of injury and enabled rats with severed spinal cords to coordinate hind limb joint movement and walk without weight support within five weeks. Minoru Ueda, M.D., and colleagues, describe their findings in The Journal of Clinical Investigation in a paper titled “Human dental pulp-derived stem cells promote locomotor recoveryafter complete transection of the rat spinal cord by multiple neuro-regenerative mechanisms.” While results have demonstrated that stem cell transplantation can promote varying degrees of functional recovery in spinal cord injury (SCI), these types of cells have shown poor survival and/or differentiation capacity in vivo. Human adult dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) and stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHEDs), meanwhile are easily obtained stem cell populations that display markers of both mesenchymal and neuroectodermal stem cells and can be obtained relatively easily. Like adult bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs), they can also be prompted to differentiate into osteoblasts, chondrocytes, adipocytes, endothelial cells, and functionally active neurons in vitro, under defined conditions, the authors note.
Dental- Tissue Stem Cells May Aid in Bone Regenration

Study shows….Stem cells extracted from teeth and dental pulp of canines can be grafted and regeneraate bone between parents and offspring, accrding to a report published online November 5th in Cell Transplantation.
Researches from Magoya University School of Medicine in Magoya, Japan, extracted teeth from the mandibular region of canine puppies and parents. After four weeks, they prepared bone defects on both side of the mandible of the parents. They implanted the following graft material into these defects: group1, defect only (control); group 2, platelet rich plasma (PRP) group 3, canine mesenchymal stem cells/PRP; group 4, canine dental pulp stemcells/PRP; and group 5, puppy primary tooth stem cells/PRP.
With the holidays upon us many college age students will be making their way into the dentist’s office for their annual check ups and routine dental care. Wisdom teeth usually become problematic for these individuals while they are away at school and particularly when they are stressed during exam time.
Top Ten Reasons To Remove Wisdom Teeth10. Due to limited space for wisdom teeth to erupt, the surrounding gums are difficult to keep clean and infection and inflammation are common. 9. Research suggests that oral inflammation associated with wisdom teeth may contribute to preterm or low birth weight infants.
6. With age, the chance for complications related to the removal of wisdom teeth increases.
5. Gum disease and inflammation associated with wisdom teeth may lead to receding gum tissues, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth loss.
4. Wisdom teeth may contribute to crowding of nearby teeth.
3. Even (asymptomatic) wisdom teeth can be a breeding ground for oral infection and inflammation which may contribute to the development and progression of a variety of diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
2. Once it has been determined that a wisdom tooth will not successfully erupt into your mouth and be maintained in a healthy state, their early removal is associated with a faster and easier recovery.
Our next course will be held on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 is
sponsored by OMSNYC and will feature Dr. Daniel
Budasoff presenting on “2012 New Materials & Techniques: Do Our
Old Principles Still Apply”?
