Stem Cells May Re-Grow Lost Teeth

26th / September / 2017

Sharks can replace a lost tooth so why can’t humans? Teeth possess stem cells which should, in theory, be capable of being used to replace missing teeth and scientists are working on this possibility.

  • Scientists can already grow teeth in laboratory animals, and the next step is human clinical trials
  • Stem cells will be used to re-grow rather than replace missing teeth.
  • The dentist of the future will store dental stem cells to fix cavities and create a new tooth

“Instead of simply throwing a tooth in the bin after an extraction, we may be able to extract cells for a future when they can be used to replenish a tooth.”

An article on the topic can be found at http://www.impactlab.net/2017/08/11/will-stem-cells-replace-dental-implants/.
