Trauma-induced bone deformities, cyst or tumour , congenital malformations, are frequent in the maxillofacial region. Bone grafts are the currently used for repairing irreparable skeletal injury or abnormalities with few limitations like  material scarcity and donor-site morbidity. Dental Stem cells are unique  cells that have specialized capacity for self-renewal and and can give rise to  different cell types.Because of the ability of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) to self-renew, the use of DPSCs from human pulp tissues of deciduous or permanent teeth has gained appeal among scientists as a stem cell-based therapeutic option.The goal of this article is to provide a brief assessment of the available research on  Dental pulpal stem cells and their various application in maxillofacial surgery including tooth regeneration and craniofacial abnormalities,.
