Most of us know how it's possible to reduce the need for fillings if we look after our teeth properly,but new research may offer as big helping hand
Teeth could be regrown using a drug developed to help with Alzheimer's.
Researchers from the U.K.’s King’s College London are on the case — and they may have just found a way to banish artificial fillings for good. What they describe in a new research paper, published in the journal Science Reports, is a method for stimulating the renewal of living stem cells in teeth, using a drug developed to help with Alzheimer’s.
To put it another way, it could soon be possible to trigger damaged teeth to repair themselves.
