, what are the current developments in tooth regeneration / regrowth?

1 Answer:

Hello Naufal,


The medical world is currently centered on the treatment of diseases with stem cell methods, or also called regenerative medicine. Researchers in various countries are actively conducting various trials involving stem cells to treat various types of diseases. Adult tooth regeneration is also one of the fields that receives active attention. Some researchers are conducting trials on the possibility of regenerating adult teeth, for example for cases of caries (cavities) or cases of tooth loss (for example due to accidents or other diseases). But so far research is still ongoing at the animal stage, not yet entering the stage of human clinical trials.


A research takes dozens to tens of years to be able to enter the stage of human clinical trials. Thus, until now there has been no case of regeneration of adult teeth that have actually been proven in humans. Researchers still use small animals such as mice and rats. Some researchers in Europe and the United States try to use collagen sponges that are exposed to various drugs, then put in cavities. Researchers in Japan developed autologous stem cells to grow new teeth (whole tooth regeneration).


But again, all research is still at the animal stage. At the moment, what needs to be done is to prevent tooth decay from causing permanent tooth loss. Thus my brief information, I hope you benefit. Regards.
