Growing Back Adult Teeth!

Hey everyone! Play any hockey lately? Crash on your bike? Well, if you've done any of those things and lost some teeth in the process, all hope is not lost! Check out this article on scientists growing new adult teeth: Teasing Out New Teeth

The researchers have been able to take the cells taken from the gums of an adult human and combine them with cells taken from the molars of fetal mice and grow new teeth. However, they're still not ready to use this method clinically, so keep your teeth safe! (at least for a few more years)
