    Present review article emphasizes use of variousstem cell types, biological scaffold materials, genes andfactors essentially required in woundhealing, transplantation and regeneration of toothimplants. All recent developments in tooth engineeringused for successful regeneration of tooth, inductionof enamel and formation of dentin complexes arehighlighted. In addition, genes, factors and mineralsrequired in vascularization and maintenance ofmicroenvironment for responsiveness to cells are alsoelucidated as most attractive candidates for regenerationtherapy. Present review also elucidates use of stable anddurable biodegradable polymer scaffolds materials andcementum/periodontal-ligament complex formation.There is a need to widen the horizon of bio-rootengineering technology for successful repairing of toothinjuries and replacement of fractured or traumatizedtooth. For this purpose, use of implantation ofcultured stem cells, adhesion factors and biomaterials canprovide stable attachment of dental implants. This reviewalso sketch upon need of newer technologies and moreadhesive biocompatible biomaterials for successful dentalimplants and enamel regenerative therapies.

    IntroductionPeriodontal diseases and tooth decay and enamel

    destruction including periodontal ligament (PDL), cementum,and bone are a major causes of tooth loss in adults. This is amajor public-health problem in pediatric and adults groupsworldwide. PDL is a specialized connective tissue that connectscementum and alveolar bone to maintain and support teeth insitu and preserve tissue homoeostasis. Recent advancementsin implantation technology of dentally derived stem cells orhuman PDL stem cells, led to significant progress in the field oftooth regeneration [1]. PDLSCs in defined culture conditionsdifferentiate into cementoblasts, adipocytes, and collagen-forming cells. These cells when transplanted generate acementum/PDL-like structure that contribute periodontaltissue repair. Today many advanced technologies are in use tosupport tooth enamel development and regeneration in vitroas well as in vivo. For successful tooth regeneration culturedstem cells, cementing adhesives and biological scaffoldmaterials are used. More often, for transplantation purpose,stem cells are derived from an easily accessible tissue sourceand expanded ex vivo. These stem cell types are promisingtherapeutic tools which are used for reconstruction of enameltissues that are destroyed due to periodontal diseases. In lastthree decades tissue engineering has emerged as a promisingalternative approach to find solutions and clinical treatmentsfor restoration of soft tissue defects mainly related to enameland dental pulp. There have been made numerous rapid andexciting developments in tissue engineering technology whichsuccessfully regenerate and form a fully functional tooth inanimal models, from a bioengineered tooth germ cell. In thesemethods bone-forming stem cells, new osteoinductivebiomaterials, and growth factors are used. For growth anddevelopment of tissue engineered tooth, stem cells areimplanted into different tissues that need suitable growingenvironment in vivo [2] (Figure 1). These have revolutionizedthe toot regeneration therapy and assisted the clinicians andenable them to conduct successful clinical trials for findingappropriate solutions of decayed and defective tooth [3](Figure 2). Guided tissue regeneration is used forreconstructive osseous surgery [4].
