Scientists Can Grow New Teeth Right In Your Mouth In Two Months Using Stem Cells Now

Sign me the hell up!

They claim it’s even cheaper than those damn implants  without any of the problems associated with those.

No More Fake Teeth: Stem Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth In 2 Months

 Dental implants can also fail and have no ability to “remodel” because the surrounding jaw bone changes with age.

Health issues associated with dental implants include nerve damage, infection at the implant site, sinus problems, and injury or damage to the surrounding structures.

According to Dentistry IQ:

“Despite being the preferred treatment for missing teeth today, dental implants can fail and have no ability to “remodel” with the surrounding jaw bone, which undergoes necessary and inevitable changes throughout a person’s life.”

PopularScience adds:

“Although dental implants are available, the healing process can take months on end, and implants that fail to align with the ever-growing jawbone tend to fall out. If only adult teeth could be regenerated, right?”

“According to a study published in the latest Journal of Dental Research, a new tissue regeneration technique may allow people to simply regrow a new set of pearly whites.”

Luckily, scientists have come up with a more natural and comfortable solution to replace missing teeth by regrowing the tooth in the patient’s mouth.

At his Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory, Dr. Jeremy Mao and his team are now able to induce the body’s stem cells to develop a tooth based on a three-dimensional scaffold made of natural materials.

The results? A better-fit, natural tooth that grows in as little as nine weeks.

According to Dr. Mao, the approach (which eliminates the need to grow teeth in a Petri dish) is a more cost-effective one “for patients who cannot afford or who aren’t good candidates for dental implants.”

This is nothing short of amazing.

Since I am about a toothless old reprobate anymore I can’t wait to see this procedure covered by dental plans everywhere.

Tomorrow.

  1. Put three such implants in your mouth – you could buy a nice car for the same price.
    I wonder if I will see the day when this awesome new treatment will become available and affordable for me.

  2. Being the sick old bastard that I am, I’m reminded of the Penthouse Forum letter many years ago from the little lady that, on the request from her new husband, pulled all her teeth in order to better service his desires.
    After a couple of months of wedded bliss, he divorced the toothless bitch.
    If this had been available then, they might possibly have stayed together.
    Possibly……

  3. I have a molar lower rear and the dentist is talking a crown and I am talking yank the damn thing out. Crowns cost way to much also and are not guaranteed to last, screw that. My dad had bad teeth and would get crowns and he would get a crown and a year later having to get the crown replaced. I would rather become an toothless, old reprobate like Phil (My Hero) but you would have to add pervert to the description…

  5. You and I will be long dead before the FDA approves this for us mundanes. And since teeth are optional I expect the price to rival implants….simply because of greed.
