ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential of nonembryonic stem-cell-based dentistry in the U.S. Dental scientists believe that adult stem cells can help grow dentin along with enamel, cementum and pulp, resulting in new teeth growth. It mentions some entities that are conducting work with stem cell research and dentistry, including the Forsynth Institute in Massachusetts and BioEden. It offers guidelines for presenting a new procedure or innovation that has dental value to the American Dental Association's (ADA) coding committee.

    The article discusses vital staining of growing bones and teeth with alizarine Red S. The authors examine the use of alizarine Red S as a vital dye, which is common because it produces a sharp line in incremental zones of dentin, cementum, and bone that are calcifying. The chemistry of the...

    Osteopontin (OPN) is one of the major non-collagenous proteins in root cementum and other mineralized tissues. Although most of this mineral-seeking protein is thought to be produced by local tissue cells, some of it might enter the mineralizing matrix from the blood. To test this hypothesis, we...

    Dentin hypersensitivity is the most frequent complaint among reported odontalgias. It is characterized by a sharp pain arising from exposed dentin in response to thermal, tactile, chemical and/or osmotic stimuli. The enamel or cementum which normally covers the dentin surface may be removed by...
