'Bioteeth' a step closer to becoming clinical reality
from Dental Tribune
Researchers at the Dental Institute at King's College London say they're a step closer to growing human teeth in the lab using cells from the individual who would ultimately receive the tooth as a natural implant. Led by professor Paul Sharpe, the research team isolated adult human gingival tissue from dental patients at the institute, grew more of the tissue in the lab and then combined the tissue with mesenchyme cells from mice.
