A group of scientists from London Kings College has developed a new method for the restoration of human teeth: experts have taken the gum cells of adult patients by introducing them into the embryonic connective tissue of mice.
The resulting combination of cells was subsequently transplanted to laboratory rodents, safely settling down in their jaws.
According to researches, the method can expand the use of stem cells in medicine.
However, some of the scientists stressed the high cost of updated teeth for everyday clinic use.
The next step, experts call the use of human embryonic connective tissue from the so-called wisdom teeth, which at the moment is laborious from technological point of view.
According to the forecasts of researches, the technology will become more accessible and easier after 10-15 years of intensive research.
