Raise Your Hand if You Hate Going to the Dentist!
Ours is already up in the air. No one likes getting their teeth drilled at a dentist, but sometimes, it’s necessary. Tooth cavities and decay can only be resolved by taking a trip to the dentist, but the problem is that it hurts and makes a dent in your budget as well. And that’s just for the regular stuff – dentures and dental implants are even pricier.
Both solutions are the only answer for replacing lost teeth. However, neither works great. Implants have a lengthy recovery time, and then there’s the problem of rejection and infections. If the surrounding bone does not fuse with the metal implant properly, you’re looking at a world of trouble. Although dental implants are the preferred method for replacing missing teeth, they are far from the ideal one.
Is There Another Solution?
That’s the question we’ve all been asking. Science has failed to find another solution to missing teeth for a long time until now. A groundbreaking discovery has found a way to regrow teeth from scratch and could potentially spell the end to those nasty implants!
It’s a natural and non-invasive solution to missing teeth and should definitely cost less than dentures or implants. The process involves using a person’s own stem cells in order to regrow the missing teeth.
The revolutionary solution is a much better, natural option for replacing missing teeth. It’s probably the biggest discovery in dentistry ever and is much, much cheaper than dental implants.
Dr. Mao, the leader of the Columbia University study, says that the stem cells are implanted directly in the tissue, eliminating the need to regrow teeth in a Petri dish like other stem cell procedures.
The new tooth will bond easier with the jaw since it’s a natural fit. The procedure is much safer and works better than dental implants which have been known to be ill-fitting. At the moment, the procedure is in a phase of extensive testing, with doctors hopeful to make the procedure public as soon as possible.
Science Praises Dr. Mao’s Discovery
After seeing Dr. Mao’s research, other scientists such as Dr. Rena d’Souza were impressed by the procedure. Dr. d’Souza says that the procedure is revolutionary and will definitely change dentistry for good.
Columbia University has already filed patents for the new dental technology and is currently trying to attract investors for further research. We’re keeping our fingers crossed on this one since it’s the dental discovery we’ve been waiting for ages.
