Brief description Dental diseases affecting the gums (periodontal diseases) are extremely prevalent. The effects of periodontal disease can be particularly severe as loss of support for the teeth leads to loose teeth and severely compromised chewing function. If left untreated, the associated loss of function may necessitate extraction of the teeth. We propose to generate induced pluripotent stem cells from gums and explore whether they can be used to restore periodontal tissues damaged by periodontal disease.
