Sign me the hell up!
They claim it’s even cheaper than those damn implants without any of the problems associated with those.
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.”
“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.
