With the advancement of science tooth banking is now well-known field. Tooth banking is storage of stem cells extirpated from human teeth that have ability to regenerate in various cells. Various parts of teeth are valuable source of highly regenerative cells. Use of stem cells in regenerative medicine has been proven since more than last two decades. Not only milk teeth have these unique cells, healthy adult teeth like third molar can also be processed to isolate them. These stem cells are like mesenchymal cells that can go for self-renewal and have multipotent differential abilities. Preserving these cells at specialised stem cell bank offers a promising future need for children with 100% matching DNA. At present these cells are under more than 300 clinical trials including the treatment of cerebral palsy and autism, cancer, neural regeneration, organ transplant type 1 diabetes etc.
