Dr. Jeremy Mao and his team from Columbia University were able to regrow teeth using stem cells as a ‘scaffold’ for the new tooth to grow over. Dr. Mao goes on to explain, “The missing tooth is replaced with stem cells from your body, and the tooth starts merging to the surrounding tissue on its own. This boosts the regeneration process and results in regrowth of the tooth in record time.” Essentially, this could mean the end of expensive dental surgeries used to replace damaged or missing teeth in the near future.
