Injuries in the cranial and maxillofacial region are clinically important because this region contains the most exposed parts of the body and is important for expression of social etiquette. Currently, the most common methods used to repair cranial and maxillofacial defects are autologous tissue transplantation and artificial composite material reparation. However, these methods have limitations. In recent years, tissue engineering has been developed as an alternative method of craniofacial reparation and reconstruction. Stem cell therapy is an emerging strategy that may potentially be used for the reconstruction of craniofacial defects.
