Hormone Gel Regenerates Teeth, Could Eliminate The Need For Fillings
A new substance could make filling cavities obsolete.
A team of French scientists have developed a new hormone gel that regenerates tooth cells and could potentially eliminate the need to fill cavities or drill into the root canal of an infected tooth. The gel contains a peptide called MSH which is known to encourage bone regeneration, and if placed near a cavity, it would allow cells to grow and heal the tooth from within.
