Research carried out by George Huang, the Herbert Schilder chair in endodontics and director of the postdoctoral programme in endodontics at the School of Dental Medicine, has discovered a way to use stem cells to regrow lost portions of teeth.

The procedure works by extracting living stem cells and using them to create any missing structures within a mature tooth, for example due to injury or decay.

“Perhaps in the future, we’ll be regrowing a whole tooth and that may take 30 years, but once the technology is mature, it may replace dental implants,” commented Mr Huang.

Elsewhere, Provia Laboratories recently launched its new Save-A-Tooth system that can be used to store stem cells found in lost teeth.

The product’s manufacturer noted both wisdom and baby teeth are good sources of stem cells and Save-A-Tooth can be used to cryogenically store these teeth for up to 20 years.

The Save-A-Tooth system from Provia Laboratories enables a lost tooth to be stored cryogenically and then used up to 20 years later to help treat illnesses that a person might develop.

Wisdom and baby teeth are both good sources of stem cells, the product’s manufacturer noted.

“Four million baby teeth a year normally fall out and for a small cost and virtually no effort, each can have their stem cells stored for future medical use,” commented Dr. Paul Krasner, professor of endodontics at Temple University School of Dentistry.

The product works by immersing the tooth in a sterile solution allowing any degradation within the tooth to be stopped.

Elsewhere, the Irish Independent recently reported ensuring children brush their teeth regularly is an important part of maintaining oral health, although children under seven should be supervised by an adult.
