Everyone knows that there are dental implants, they were invented to benefit our lives in numerous ways, and are a great solution to fill the gap. But what if I told you that there is a way to grow your own new teeth, that would stay there for good?
A group of experts in the dental field have made some amazing discoveries and there has been a really incredible development in the technology of dental implants that goes far beyond the classic implant or denture. They say that these discoveries will give us the chance to grow new and genuine teeth in the oral cavity. Yes, you read that correctly!
The famous Dr. Jeremy Mao of Columbia University was the lead investigator of this research and what he found was absolutely incredible. Dr. Mao built a scaffold for teeth, containing stem cells in the body. Using DNA, he succeeded in regenerating new teeth. This discovery of the modern technology promises a bright future when it comes to dental care.
Underground Health Reporter claims:
“This is a much-needed medical advancement, especially considering that by age 74—26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.”
Dentistry iQ adds:
“A new technique pioneered at the Tissue Engineering, and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory of Dr. Jeremy Mao, Edward V. Zegarelli Professor of Dental Medicine, and a professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia University can orchestrate the body’s stem cells to migrate to three-dimensional scaffold that is infused with the growth factor. This can yield an anatomically correct tooth in as soon as nine weeks once implanted in the mouth.”
“Dental implants usually consist of a cone-shaped titanium screw with a roughened or smooth surface and are placed in the jaw bone. While implant surgery may be performed as an outpatient procedure, healing times vary widely, and successful implantation is a result of multiple visits to certified clinicians, including general dentists, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and periodontists.”
You would never have to go through the horrible and painful process of extracting teeth again. This technology would give you the opportunity to grow your teeth back in as little as nine weeks. I know, I know, 9 weeks seems like a very long time, but look at the reality of the situation!
“Your missing tooth is being replaced with stem cells, from your own body. And the tooth merges with the surrounding tissue. Yes, it’s simple as that! This will increase the regeneration process and it will result in fast recovery.”
Why Should You Skip Dental Implants?
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.”
All of this pain could be avoided by simply skipping the dental implants and growing new teeth in the place of those lost.
The University has filed a patent for the technology and is trying to find associates to help in communication. In the meantime, Dr.Mao is considering the best approach for applying this groundbreaking dental technique. This news is excellent for those that are missing teeth and provides promising and new hope!
