Scientists Have Found A New Way To Regrow Fallen Tooth And Take Away Toothache
In reality, word that you need a root canal is some of the worst news most people get at the dentist. Whenever your dentist tells you that’s the next procedure you’re going have to go through, two things are clear beyond the pain you’re about to endure: One, that your throbbing will finally soon go away, and the second is that the tooth that’s getting the root canal is dead.
However, researchers have come up with a new kind of biomaterial that not only encourages the natural regeneration of teeth, but also might eliminate root canal procedures for good.
Researchers from the University of Harvard and Nottingham have come up with a biomaterial for fillings that is regenerative, according to Popular Science. The material stimulates the growth of stem cells in the pulp, which could prevent further tooth decay. Because fillings wouldn’t fail as often, root canal procedures could be virtually unnecessary.
