Grow New Teeth With Stem-Cell Dental Implants!

The Journal of Dental Research recently published a study about a new tissue regeneration technique that may help regrow teeth. While they do not grow in a Petri dish the anatomically correct teeth do regenerate using the body’s own material. This treatment is totally natural and has a quick recovery time (with regrowth around nine weeks after implantation).

Developed in the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory at Columbia University Medical Center, the process involves a three-dimensional scaffold with growth factor. The body’s own stem cells are attracted toward the scaffold (made of natural materials) and once the scaffold is colonized with stem cells, the tooth starts growing in the socket, and later merges with the surrounding tissue.

So. Cool.

Currently, with the patent applications filed, Columbia University is seeking people to help with the commercialization of this technology and Dr Jeremy Mao, the Edward V. Zegarellu Professor of Dental Medicine at the university, is looking for the best approach to apply his technique- keeping cost in mind.

  1. Wrong, wrong, wrong!!! This is such a poorly researched article. Firstly, the team at Columbia University Medical Center, headed by one Dr. J. Mao, who ‘pioneered’ the above mentioned method of ‘growing’ teeth formed a company way back at the beginning of this millenium (2004) called Odontis. For their ‘work’ they received a grant of $500,000 to further research and perfect the treatment, but guess what? After receiving the $500,000 no more was ever heard of the research again. Odontis was dissolved several years later. This is an old story rehashed and sold to sound as if it were a current story. It is not. It is an old story. The promise of this treatment never came to fruition and Dr.Mao is now involved in various other business activities. This ‘breakthrough treatment’ was ‘discovered’ over 12 years ago. Had there been any mileage to any of the claims made by the Columbia University Medical Center team then the treatment would most certainly have found its way into dental practice by now. I rest my case.

  2. You seem to be mightily confused. Odontis and the timeframe above belonged to Dr Paul Sharpe from the UK.

    At the time he said they’d be starting human trials before the end of the decade. Only then for it to come to nothing. He’s still trying to regrow teeth using the same mouse, embryo and kidney shtick as before.

    Mao seems to have gone quiet after his method hit the headlines way back in 2010.

  3. Unless the current dentistry establishment is against it. I mentioned this idea to my dentist about 15 years ago. He smugly dismissed it as rubbish. First step in a revolution, anyone?
