    Toothless No More – Researchers Using Stem Cells to Grow New Teeth


    For years, researchers have investigated stem cells in an effort to grow teeth made for a person’s own cells. Toward this end, endodontics professor Dr. Peter Murray and colleagues from the College of Dental Medicine at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) have developed methods to control adult stem cell growth toward generating dental tissue and “real” replacement teeth.

    Lol, why so negative?

    I bet they'll get it to work within a few years.
