|With self-healing mutant superheroes dominating the big screen, including Wolverine and Deadpool, the question may have crossed your mind – do they brush and floss regularly, or do their teeth just naturally regenerate from any decay and damage they experience?
While we can't answer that hypothetical, what about in real life, with your own teeth? Do you have the hidden superpower of auto dental reconstruction?
As of Right Now, The Answer is NoUnfortunately, the body does not naturally possess the ability to repair teeth, hence why it is so important to take care of the ones you have for life. As it stands currently, once you have your permanent adult teeth, there are no secret meditations you can do on top of remote mountains to bring back your smile.
But there is hope in the short future, thanks to the constant march of science. Doctor Jeremy Mao (Professor of Dental Medicine) has revealed a startling and near magical property of stem cells to do what was previously thought impossible. His research and discoveries, culminating in a procedure known as "cell-homing-based tooth regeneration", is not a fictional superpower, but a real possibility that patients in the future may use to regenerate their lost or damaged teeth in as little as nine weeks.
This is also regeneration in the truest sense, not the repair or regrowth of an old tooth, but the development of a brand new tooth that rapidly blooms to take the place of the lost one. (No implanting or risk of rejection involved.) The procedure is expected to cost around $3,000 per tooth once approved, which is well within the range of the cost of currently used implant technology.
Soon, sprouting a brand-new tooth may be a decision as easy to make as growing your hair out. We're not there yet (and estimates place this tech far into the indeterminate future), so for now remember to take good care of the teeth you have! If you have any questions about oral hygiene or the latest dental developments, we'd love to hear from you, so please give us a call!
