The leader of a team from Columbian University, Dr. Jeremy Mao came up with the wildest futuristic discovery. He claims that there is a way to build a specific ‘’scaffold’’ made from stem cells.
So, this place or template will allow the new tooth to grow there. As Dr. Mao states, this discovery may end the need for dental surgery.
How it Works
According to Dr. Mao, the fast regeneration begins when the steam cells together with the tooth start to merge with the tissue around the place where you want to grow your tooth. The stem cells replace the tooth that is missing and helps regrow the missing tooth.
Even though it is easier to go to the dentist and replace the missing tooth, this method is a natural solution because the teeth come from stem cells. This method is highly used especially for broken bones or even for genetic disorders.
Furthermore, it is crucial for the dentist to organize and know what kind of procedures the patient needs. It takes 9 weeks for this method to work.
The typical tooth replacement or extraction can take up to a year to recover, so this method not only is it faster, but it also doesn’t involve any foreign materials to replace the tooth.
It is sometimes hard for the body to get used to the foreign object that’s in the body. Thus, this method is a perfect and natural solution for anyone who wants to try it out.
However, the research is not published yet because it is still in the testing phase. Besides, if this proves to work, it will take dental care to a whole new level.
This new technology seems too good to be true because we all want to save money and at the same time get even better results.
Crazy and unusual discoveries such as this one will surely improve our way of life and even advance technology. Hopefully, it will soon be available to the public.
