Regrowing teeth may soon become a reality.Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
This is a pretty amazing video about how ultrasound devices can help regrow teeth. Just think about not ever having to worry about losing dentures or if your tooth somehow gets knocked out or is too decade to where the tooth has to be pulled you will be able to just regrow that tooth. Right now it's about a year or so away from possible hitting the market.

Fantastic!

I've heard of a few rare people cutting a third set very late in life, so (if those tales are true) it makes sense it'd be possible, but who'd have thought this might develop?

Love how it was an accidental outcome of other research.

Awesome. But I wish we could re-grow a tooth in just a day or two like them sharks.

I wonder what the COST will be, and whether it will be competitive with current techniques. ?

(implants, crowns, etc.)

knowing the dental mafias (eerrr, associations.. it will be as expensive as h#ll..

My grandmother had a 3rd growth of some teeth (it wasn't a complete set) . She lost those as well...lol.

yes I can see it for accidents

if people are neglecting/not taking care of their teeth to the extent they rot out--most likely the 'new' set will as well

like many people who get gastric bypass but never deal with or learn how to eat and exercise, they ballooon up again and get obese again once the 'balloon' or whatever is removed

I think most discoveries are the accidental outcome of other research. Still cool though.

But aaaawwwww.

It does seem to be very common, especially in medicine. But I never stop getting a kick out of it!

I would imagine it would be pretty safe considering they are using ultrasound technology, the same type of ultrasound technology they use for women who are pregnant and to spot tumors in a persons body etc.. but with that said I can imagine you would deal with the typical pains of growing teeth all over again.

I wonder if the same technology can be applied to stimulate hair growth in balding men. now that would be interesting....

You may think something like this would put a lot of dentist out of work but I bet when this technology does get approved that the dentist will be the only ones that are licensed to perform this.

According to the video, they're only talking about being able to put a broken tooth back in the mouth and it re-bonding. Not new teeth.

@ 1:02 in the video stated new teeth started to grow not existing teeth that were partly broken.

The nerves and blood vessels in the jaw bone form a root apex which then the root apex forms the pulp of the tooth. From the pulp of the tooth it forms the soft layer inside the tooth which is called dentine. Then the dentine part of the tooth forms the final part of the tooth which is the hard layer of the tooth called the enamel.

So by stimulating the nerves in the jaw bone with ultrasound the root apex will begin to grow a tooth.

I did a little google search on the story/CTV report... It appears as if this report came out in 2006... They seem to be about 5 years behind schedule...

Not to mention the fact, he claimed he was able to make teeth grow in rabbits, as that alone should send up a flag, because rabbits like all other rodents continue to grow teeth their whole lives.

So basically the story is ironically, a bit long in the tooth in more ways that one.
