Stem cell dental implants, what could this mean for us in the future for reversing extractions?

In these articles, they not only managed to create a dental implant from stem cells, it also was capable of moving with the jawbone like a natural tooth. It even developed a peridontal ligament.

In this article, they grew a custom-shaped tooth in mice using a scaffold. These teeth developed a nerve and blood supply as they integrated with the jawbone. 

 

Some of these articles are dated, but they’re very promising. Anyone who’s had harmful extractions done can now get orthodontic treatment done and get their premolar teeth back with stem cell implants. Also, if anyone had impacted wisdom teeth that needed to be removed, but then managed to grow their jaw sufficiently for wisdom teeth to grow in, they could have new molars put back there. Maybe even extra wisdom teeth. The possibilities are endless.

I’m assuming any technology that threatens to take a cent away from dentists’ greedy palms isn’t allowed to come out. Over 10 years and no update?

This isn’t going to make dentistry obsolete or cut into their profits. If anything, it would actually put more money into their pockets and make dentistry evolve. Instead of filling our teeth with amalgam, they would fill it up with stem cells instead (which would probably be more expensive than inorganic fillings, not to mention stem cell implants). 

Also, people knowing that teeth are more expendable would not fear getting cavities as much and go back to the dentist more. $$$.

@generationdoomer In the long run they will lose money because the stem cell dental implant lasts forever compared to the synthetic one.
