Abstract

 Loss of a tooth has a huge psychological effects as it adversely affects esthetics of one's face along with the mouth functions. Replacement of missing or damaged teeth usually involves fixed or removable prostheses or dental implants. The use of dental implants is the most rapidly growing area of dentistry. But these current treatment methods can, sometimes, reduce the quality of life because of their limited physiological function, or elicit an immunological rejection. Implants are more difficult and less successful when tooth loss is accompanied by bone loss. Here, this article outlines the current approaches toward the tooth regeneration, and focuses on several key challenges that must be met in the making of a bio-tooth.

Key Words:
Implants, Stem cells, Biotooth, Tissue engineering
