The latest scientific research will make your jaws drop. This discovery will put dentures and implants behind us. Millions people will benefit from this invention, especially those who struggle with dental issues.
Implants and dentures can cause irritations, discomfort, deformations, difficulties to eat, and pain. Implants can also cause infections, nerve damage, injury or damage to the surrounding tissue, including the sinuses.
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,” PopularScience adds on the topic. “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.”
You can avoid and treat these problems with a brand new procedure. This procedure can help you grow a tooth in the empty spot.
“This is a much-needed medical advancement, especially considering that by age 74—26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth,” Underground Health Reporter adds.
Here’s what Dentistry IQ added on the new invention:
“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.”
A new tooth will grow within two months. This procedure is less invasive and less expensive than other procedures.
“Key consideration in tooth regeneration is finding a cost-effective approach that can translate into therapies for patients who cannot afford or who are not suitable candidates for dental implants,” Dr. Jeremy Mao explains. “Cell-homing-based tooth regeneration may provide a distinct pathway toward clinical translation.”
Experts at the Columbia University Medical Center say that “Dr. Mao’s technique not only eliminates the need to grow teeth in a Petri dish, but it is the first to achieve regeneration of anatomically correct teeth by using the body’s own resources.
Factor in the faster recovery time and the comparatively natural process of regrowth (as opposed to implantation), and you have a massively appealing dental treatment.”
In the first step of the procedure, the university filed patent applications. They will soon find associates to support the commercialization of the product. Dr. Mao will try to find the best way to turn the invention into cost-effective therapy available for anyone.
The doctor is trying to create a well-acceptable therapy for those who can’t afford pricey treatments. Some people are not the best candidates for dental implants.
