Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), a promising biopolymer with significant potential in the dental field, is an immunologically compatible substance derived from natural and viable sources. Recognized as lipid acid polymers produced intracellularly by bacteria, PHB holds promise for various dental applications. If combined with dental stem cells (DPSCs), its unique properties could further enhance its suitability for innovative and biocompatible scaffold development.
