Can We Regrow Human Teeth?
We are all for ending the need for root canals!
"Vining and Celiz have just won a prize in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s emerging technology competition for creating a synthetic biomaterial that stimulates stem cells native to your teeth to repair them. That’s right: The substance appears to make that area regenerate pulp tissue and the critical bony material of your tooth known as dentin.
"Celiz said that in the future, all fillings could be made of this material so thatdamaged teeth could repair themselves, potentially ending the era of root canals, according to Popular Science."
