Stem-Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth in Your Mouth


by Healthy Food House

Recently, the Journal of Dental Research published a study according to which a new tissue regeneration technique may help in regrowing pearly white teeth.

Dr Jeremy Mao, the Edward V. Zegarellu Professor of Dental Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, explains that a three-dimensional scaffold with growth factor has the potential to regenerate and regrow anatomically correct teeth within just nine weeks after the implantation.

The procedure was developed in the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory at the university. In the process, the body’s own stem cells go toward the scaffold, which consists of completely natural materials. Once the scaffold is colonized with stem cells, the tooth starts growing in the socket, and later merges with the surrounding tissue.


In this way teeth do not grow in a Petri dish, and anatomically correct teeth regenerate by using the body’s own material. This dental treatment offers a faster recovery time and, unlike implantation, a completely natural regrowth process.


The patent applications are already filed, and the Columbia University seeks associates that will help in the commercialization of this technology. Dr Mao seeks for the best approach when it comes to applying his technique in cost-effective clinical therapies.

  2. Yes this would be great esp since root canals are bad for you. A person could just pull a tooth that needs a root canal and get a new healthy tooth in its place. If they can keep the price within reason many people would opt to get rid of dead teeth that are bacteria factories that cause health and bone problems. This could be so awesome.

  3. We've been waiting for this for YEARS! How many more years until available?

    Oh wait! The alphabet soup agencies (CORPORATIONS) will never allow this, as it would put the ADA dentists out of business. Because in this backwards insane world, it's always about the damn money.

    Then this system and these agencies fall (and FAIL), then maybe it will be a reality.

    Right now, it's just a dangling carrot to tease us.

  4. Wow! Technology has been improved a lot. I need a dental implant and I was researching about the dental implant cost ( http://www.thornhillsmilecentre.com/blog/dental-implants/investing-in-health-why-dental-implants-are-worth-the-cost/ ). Stem cell dental implant would be great if it is economical. I bet people would prefer it.
