Dentures Made From Real Teeth

The news that having dentures made from real teeth could be a reality may surprise many people. However, it seems that one day your “false teeth” may indeed be made from human teeth.

Advances are being made in this field, and some trials have apparently involved the use of existing drugs for the purpose of tooth regeneration.

Scientists have used extracted wisdom teeth to supply the tissue material required. Tissues that form part of the inner and outer surfaces of the tooth were placed in appropriate conditions to allow growth.

It seems that the first step would be to be able to replace amalgam and other style fillings. Instead of filling cavities with false materials, fillings made from laboratory grown natural teeth could be used.

In the future, we may not only see fillings made from real teeth, but dentures made from real teeth.

Geneticists must locate the genes that are responsible for the production and growth of teeth.

There could be thousands of genes that play some part in the formation and growth of teeth, so it could be decades before theories become realities.

Removable false teeth and implant retained dentures would possibly look identical to the teeth that have been removed due to decay.

Today, we have the ability to get natural looking dentures and dental implants. One day there may be a chance that you can actually get your own dentures made from real teeth.
