Dentistry is a consistently changing field that has witnessed a lot of progression in the previous century, like advances in stem cell therapies have opened new vistas for therapy of oral mucosal lesions. stem cells are defined as unique cells which have the capacity to develop rapidly and can possibly form into particular cell types in the body. Due to these, Tooth banking has become an emerging concept in developed nations around the world as dental stem cells retain the property of differentiation into neurogenic, adipogenic and odontogenic components and are used in the reconstruction of orofacial structures with the advantage of having an added opportunity of storing a tooth even if one opportunity is missed, unlike umbilical cord stem cells. In this review, we summarize current knowledge regarding stem cells as immune-modulatory agents, anti-inflammatory agents, immuno?reconstitution and regenerative properties in various oral mucosal lesions. Also, the future role of stem cell therapy in treatment of oral mucosal lesions.
