Scientists found a regenerative drug for the teeth, which will possibly reduce the need for artificial filling. This drug was used in Alzheimer’s trials and now it seems to improve the natural ability of the tooth to heal itself. It activates the stem cells in the pulp center of the tooth, prompting the area that is damaged to regenerate the dentin material.
According to P. Sharpe, this is an ideal clinical dental product for natural large cavities treatment by providing restoring dentine and pulp protection. Using a drug which has been used for Alzheimer’s clinical trials provides opportunities to get this remedy quickly in the clinics.
When the tooth is damaged by cavities or trauma, the center of the soft pulp can be exposed and increase a risk of infection.
