The gap that occurs after we take out a tooth is usually filled with a dental implant. However, the latest news from the experts shows that this method is old-fashioned way.
Now we can grow new and genuine teeth in the oral cavity in just 9 weeks, according to the new discoveries.
Dr. Jeremy Mao and his team from Columbia University developed toothpaste that contains stem cells which can regenerate new teeth by using its DNA. This finding promises very bright future in modern technology of dental care.
In most cases, dental implants are an effective way to replace the teeth we lost, but sometimes it can lead to complications and problems. Here are some of the disadvantages of dental implants:
- dental implants are expensive
- it’s possible to be rejected from the body
- they can cause infection
- the placement of the implant can end up with damage
- they can cause the bad fork
This long, painful and expensive process can be replaced with a new technology very soon!
“Your missing tooth is being replaced with stem cells, from your own body. And the tooth merges with the surrounding tissue. Yes, it’s as simple as that! This will increase the regeneration process and it will result in fast recovery.”
The dental experts are still working to improve this technology, in hopes of bringing it to the public.
