When we lose teeth, the quality of our lives may diminish for a variety of reasons. Missing teeth don’t just make us feel insecure about the way we look; they also prevent us from eating the delicious foods we used to love. Additionally, research has drawn a correlation between missing teeth and some serious medical conditions. Fortunately, modern science has come up with a solution for this common dental problem; however, scientists are also studying new bizarre remedies that may one day allow patients to regrow lost teeth.
Unlike a handful of animals, human beings are only able to grow two sets of teeth; however, a team of scientists recently conducted a successful experiment that may one day change this. Using stem cells, researchers out of King’s College in London grew mouse/human hybrid teeth. Although it may sound like something from a bizarre sci-fi movie, this experiment has raised eyebrows within the scientific community which considers it to be a major breakthrough. In fact, experts believe this research may eventually give dentists the power to replace missing teeth with artificially-grown “natural” teeth.
Decades from now, science may give doctors the power to replace almost any body part with artificially-grown imitations. Unfortunately, in today’s world, that’s just not possible. That said, if you’ve lost permanent teeth, there are solutions available. Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins provide their patients with modern dental implants which look and function just like normal teeth.
Have you grown tired of living without the foods you used to love? Why live without teeth, when you could be chewing and smiling just like you used to? Contact Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins today to find out how dental implants can make your life better.
