Stem cells are cells that have the ability to self-replicate and differentiate into at least two different cell line types. There are several different types of stem cells. Amniotic fluid-derived stem cells stand out because they have the capacity for proliferation and differentiation into multiple cell line types. The ability to differentiate into multiple cell line types that have the potential to heal many tissues in the same patient makes them an ideal choice in dentistry. Amniotic fluid-derived stem cells also introduce the concept of tissue engineering into the field of dentistry. Tissue engineering applies the principles of engineering and life sciences towards the development of biological substitutes that aim to maintain, restore, or improve tissue function. The strategy behind tissue engineering falls into two categories, one being the use of acellular scaffolds, which depend on the body’s natural ability to regenerate proper orientation and direction of new tissue growth and secondly, the use of these scaffolds seeded with stem cells. Tissue engineering requires the use of different biomaterials which must replicate the biological and mechanical function of the native extracellular matrix found in the tissues of the body. The ideal biomaterial should be biodegradable and bioabsorbable to support the replacement of normal tissue without inducing inflammation.
