Japanese Scientists Grow Teeth From Stem Cells


Dr. Takashi Tsuji from Tokyo University of Science and his research team were successful in extracting stem cells from the molars of mice. They then transported these cells to the lab where they used them to grow new mouse teeth, The new, lab-grown teeth were then transplanted in the jaws of mice, and full attachment occurred in just 40 days.

Nerve fibers had also begun growing in the engineered teeth which indicates a near perfect transplant. Human transplants might become the standard in dental repair in the next decades.
