Dental implants have saved millions of lives around the world and are the best solution for filling gaps in your teeth. They represent surgical components that connect with a part of the jaw in order to support a dental prosthesis such as a bridge, crown, denture, etc. through a process known as osseointegration. However, scientists have now discovered a completely non-invasive technique that will allow you to regrow your own teeth in only 9 weeks!
A group of scientists have been able to find a new discovery that will make even dental implants a thing of the past. This discovery will help our body regrow teeth in the mouth completely on its own and may replace bridges, crowns and dentures in the future. Dr. Jeremy Mao and his team of scientists from the Columbia University have managed to build a scaffold for teeth made of stem cells and stimulated the growth of new teeth using DNA. This amazing discovery promises a bright future for dental care and gives the opportunity to grow your own teeth back in only 9 weeks!
“The missing tooth is replaced with stem cells from your body, and the tooth starts merging to the surrounding tissue on its own. This boosts the regeneration process and results in regrowth of the tooth in a record time,” Dr. Mao says. The procedure is currently under research and not yet available to the public, but Dr. Mao says that it shouldn’t take much time before it sees the light of day.
