Mesenchymal stem cell application in dental implantology related bone augmentation procedures: A review of the literature
Bone augmentation procedures are unavoidable surgical procedures for the clinicians, who perform dental implant therapy for the rehabilitation of edentulous ridges. Many types of bone substitutes or graft materials are used for this purpose. Despite its several disadvantages, autogenous bone grafts still remain the gold standard graft materials. Contemporary literature suggests that utilization of mesenchymal stem cells in alveolar bone augmentation procedures can be a feasible alternative to autogenous bone grafts. In this review paper clinical outcomes of intraoperative use of adult mesenchymal stem cells in various Bone Augmentation procedures have been evaluated.
