Growing New Teeth in the Mouth Using Stem-Cell Dental Implants

By Shinji Tutoru July 26th, 2015 |

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER, NY, USA. Human molar scaffolding is a technique that directs the body’s stem cells into scaffolding that will assist in regenerating a new tooth. This innovation can immensely alleviate the need to go through the painful, expensive and tedious process of dental implants.

Edwin S. Robinson Professor of Dentistry at Columbia University and Co-Director for the Center for Craniofacial Regeneration, Dr. Jeremy Mao has developed a growth factor-infused, three-dimensional scaffold that has the capability of regenerating an anatomically correct tooth in a span of 9 weeks from the date of implantation. He used a method that was developed in the university’s Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory. He can direct the body’s own stem cells towards the three-dimensional scaffold which is made of natural materials. Hence, the stem cells will naturally colonize the scaffold, enabling a tooth to grow in the socket and merge with the surrounding tissue.

Dr. Mao’s technique has successfully eliminated the need to grow new teeth in a Petri dish. Also, it is the first technique ever to successfully achieve the regeneration of an anatomically correct tooth with the use of the body’s innate resources. This method definitely has a faster recovery time compared to current dental implant procedures. Also, its natural process of regeneration is more appealing and enticing. Currently, Dr. Mao is testing different ways in applying his technique to make it more cost-effective in clinical therapies.

    They’ve actually filed the patents for this now. it works. When they reported in 2010 they still didnt know if the tooth would be grown in or out of the mouth or if it would be connected to the nervous system. Also this says that it pulls stem cells from the body. In 2010 it was all about actually inserting them into the scaffold from some other source. So the tech seems to be coming along nice. Now i think, It’s just a matter of practical application. How to make it a cheap enough procedure to make it comercially viable and attainable for a big enough market. Clinical trials will hopefully start within the next 1 or 2 years.

      That’s amazing that you know the info. I’ve been reading some of the papers relating to this but I really am not sure how to understand the differences between what’s been happening then and now. I understand developments have been made in creating a tooth in a mouse model, and then a swine. Looking forward to when this takes off in humans. I think I read the teeth at first may be a “first generation” solution – as in they don’t look like perfect teeth but you could put a crown on them.

  2. Richard Prest says:

    Hello and it’s about time that this issue has been addressed, I have been without natural teeth for decades. I have worn dentures both uppers and lowers, but now my mandible has suffered so much bone lost that a new denture without implants is not possible. Can your method using stem cells regenerate new teeth

  11. Karen rapport says:

    I have always disliked my teeth. Numerous metal fillings need to come out, so I’ve asked all my dentists to yank my teeth and I’d have dentures. My teeth don’t match, they are painful and I don’t want to spend my entire retirement on new teeth. I love to promote products and things and I think this might be the answer to my teeth dilemma .
    Please contact me if you need a mouth to show and teach,

    I’m up for a trial run I was in desert storm in1990. Soon after my teeth rapidly declined. I had to have most removed. I wear dentures but they wear down too. Love to be a guinea pig.

  28. Me Anderson says:

    Certainly, if you can generate teeth, can you also stimulate bone growth in the mandible? Do to a dentist error, and infection in my upper jaw, i lost my upper teath… can’t have implants because upper bone is to thin. Love science, so many new and wonderful procedures to help with human kind ailments. Interesting read!
