Abstract: The regeneration potential of human tissue is very limited. With time and continuous research, science has reached a new level where we are almost capable of regenerating lost tissue. Adult stem cells are multipotent and can be induced experimentally to differentiate into various cell lineages. Hence, such cells play a role in achieving the promise of tissue regeneration. As of now, tests and trials are happening worldwide, but this advancement is still to be implemented in everyday practice. This article is our attempt to bring together all the relevant facts about stem cells, their use in tissue engineering and its application; through reviewing the key articles published so far on this topic so as to gather all the needful information about this utterly vast and complex matter. This review will also update the existing and current stem cells application in engineering tissue structures and its future prospects in the field of dentistry.
