Dentures in a few years will not be needed. Just regrow your teeth. Amazing what we can do.


"If the root is broken, it can now be fixed," said Dr. Tarak El-Bialy of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. "And because we can regrow the teeth root, a patient could have his own tooth rather than foreign objects in his mouth."

The team has filed for a patent on their prototype in the U.S. They expect to have a version that is ready for patients within two years.


This is great news for kids who break their teeth. Or even hockey players


Wonder what they will come up with next?

nice find, i've heard of many interesting ultrasound based treatments, but using it on teeth is new. sounds logical, though, considering that teeth are essentially bony structures....
