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.
