Many of you who have ever had the bad luck of losing a tooth, you may have considered dental implants in the past, which for sure made you surprised, because of the high price asked from you and the materials such as mercury or silver that are used.
But, the good news is that that there is an incredible new development in oral health that gives the chance to grow your teeth back.
Regrow Your Own Teeth:
We will share the experience of Dr. Jeremy Mao and his team from Columbia University who succeed to regrow teeth.
Dr. Mao explains that the missing tooth could be replaced with stem cells from your body, and it starts merging to the surrounding tissue on its own. This process boosts the regeneration and the final results are very fast regrown of the tooth. He states that it could be the end of expensive dental surgeries that are used to replace damaged or missing teeth.
On the field of dental health that will be of great help as now is the risks that come with dental implants. According to the experience of the people and researches, they can increase the risk of vulnerability to illnesses in the future such as liver disease, kidney disease, as well as heart disease.
The main problem while doing implants now is the lack of the biocompatibility testing, which raises the impact of the materials being biologically compatible with the tissues in our body. This test should be done to ensure that materials used for this purpose are safe for the body.
The dentists often use implants in withdrawal sites where cavitation (inflammation) is already developing.
After receiving the metal implants, autoimmune diseases seem to be often intensified. Furthermore, when you place two dissimilar metals in your mouth an event called oral galvanism occurs. This is similar as you are creating a battery that will serve to drive the ions of the metals out in your mouth and also generate electricity. Basically, the human’s body relies on electric signals to operate biological systems, and after introducing a new, foreign electrical signal, it can interfere with these processes and cause the imbalances. When that imbalance occurs it can contribute to health problems.
However, at the moment the dentists are limited to the procedures that are available, but Dr. Mao and his team, by using new stem cell research to develop their findings and use them to treat anything from broken bones to genetic disorders.
Their experience showed that the process to regrow the teeth takes 9 weeks, which is longer than if you were to receive a conventional procedure. That is reasonable to assume that the people would prefer to have a new tooth made up of their own DNA, rather than a foreign substance in their mouth.
This procedure is currently in the research stages and not available to the public yet, but according to Dr. Mao should be available in the near future. However, if you want to avoid conventional treatments that could be harmful, in the meantime, you should look for a good biological dentist.
Good oral health is strongly linked to the good overall health, so take care of that body and it will take care of you!
