We all know that the dental implants are making our lives much easier and they are extremely useful and a great solution to fill the gap after we take out a tooth or even more than one.
But, have you heard the latest news – well, apparently, the experts in the dental field have made some amazing discoveries and there has been a really incredible development in the technology of dental implants that goes far beyond the classic implants and denture.
Well, these discoveries and developments will give us the chance to grow new and genuine teeth in oral cavity. Here’s what you need to know – Dr. Jeremy Mao of Columbia University was the lead investigator of this research and what he found was absolutely incredible.
Dr. Jeremy Mao built a scaffold for teeth, containing these stem cells in the body. He actually helped new teeth regeneration, with just using their DNA. So, this modern technology promises a bright future for dental care.
The dental implants are very useful, but they can cause some real problems. As we said before, these dental implants are an easy and effective way to replace one or more lost teeth. But, wait, even though they are good replacement, they can still cause some problems and complications for us. Here are the most common implant complications:
- Dental implants may be rejected by the body
- The dental implants cost a lot of money
- It may cause infection and then you need to remove the dental implant
- If the dentist doesn’t have much experience with this, he can damage your gum
- The dental implant could not connect with the jawbone in a good way
These, most common, dental implant complications suggest that a lot of money and time can be a loss and pain and discouragement, if something goes wrong. But, what if we tell you that you can avoid the painful and long process of extracting the teeth? Well, this modern technology gives you the opportunity to grow your teeth in just nine weeks. This amount of time, 9 weeks, is the time needed for this process. The device has to be placed and accepted by the body. The best thing about this implant method is that it uses good materials to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
But, let me say this in the simplest way possible – your missing tooth is being replaced with stem cells, from your own body. And the tooth merges with the surrounding tissue. Yes, it’s simple as that! This will increase the regeneration process and it will result in fast recovery. Well, the bad thing is that this procedure is not yet available for all the people in the world. It’s still in researching process and it is pending approval from the medical authorities. For the last few decades there have been many improvements of the dental implants, and they all promise a more natural and healthy replacement for our missing teeth. They all require less recovery time and the chances of being rejected are very small.
