Stem cells and PRP: The stem cells based therapies could help in treating damaged teeth (cementum, periodontal ligament fibers, and dental pulp), bone regeneration and also treating nerve injuries. PRP is used already in dental surgery (soft tissues, bone tissue and TMJ). More research is needed, but the results so far are promising.

Not aware of use: I am not aware of the use of stem cell therapy or PRP in dentistry.....Curious, why are you asking? .....Arguably PRP could be used with some TMD issues.
