New research indicates that periodontal ligament stem cells are the most effective of the clinically tested dental tissue-derived stem cells.
There were three different types that were tested. The research was published in the most recent issue of Cell Transplantation.
The South Korean research team demonstrated the study by using beagle dogs that had advanced periodontal disease to the point in which it affected their premolars and molars. These areas have some similarities as the areas in human dentition.
