teeth health smile dentistTo replace a missing tooth, a dental implant is an excellent solution. However, stem cells may be an option in the future. What are scientists discovering?
– Some animals are able to replace teeth throughout their lifetimes.
– Every tooth contains primitive stem cells, and these cells could be used to literally “grow” a new tooth.
– Scientists have been able to grow tooth replacements in laboratory settings.
– Clinical tests in humans may not be far off.
Recent advances in stem cell research have revealed a future where dental implants could become old technology.”
