Growing New Teeth is the Next Big Thing

Growing New Teeth is the Next Big Thing

The American College of Prosthodontists recently found over 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Are you one of them? If you’re missing a tooth, there are numerous solutions that do their best to fill the gap in your smile. The greatest of these solutions, dental implants, are the number one solution for many toothless patients. A dental implant is a fixed solution that looks and feels natural, increases chewing retention, and doesn’t require tedious care. They’re also affordable, if you’re looking for one in the right place. However, new research points to an even better solution, one that lets us grow new teeth naturally.

Here’s where stem cell research comes to play. Recent studies are proving we can just regrow our teeth! Yes, the two sets of teeth we’re born with may not be the only ones we have. Check out the development of stem cell teeth, and when we can see it in the future.

Foods Worse than Candy that are Hurting Your Teeth

Time and time again we’ve reinforced the idea in our heads that candy is bad for your teeth, plain and simple. What if we told you it’s not candy that causes cavities? Surprisingly, it’s not the sugar intake that’s directly harming your teeth. In fact, the mutual bacteria inside your mouth naturally consumes sugar. However, the byproduct of that is acid, which bacteria excretes once they break down the sugar. Acid is the true culprit that eats away at your enamel and leads to cavities or worse.

We’re not saying candy is without fault, but it isn’t the leading cause of tooth decay. You’re in for a surprise as we talk about some foods and drinks you didn’t know are damaging your teeth.
