Lasers and Stem Cells Regrowing Teeth

Stem cells are the future of healthcare for the human race, as we've studied them more we've found out all the different ways that they could be used to take care of many of the problems facing people today, from baldness to Alzheimer's research, they've become the miracle cure that society has wanted to badly for so many years. (christianitytoday) The biggest problem people have had with stem cell treatment is that when it began the primary source of stem cells was via embryonic stem cells, this put the majority of people off the process as they weren't willing to support aborted embryos in order to progress medically. (frc) With the advancement in the process and the ability to generate stem cells from adult tissue the battle over the ethics of using said cells to treat the many illnesses and injuries that have embattled the human race for ages, making it more palatable for those who were once torn over the research. (childrenshospital) As the debate rages on over the benefits and risks of stem cell treatment the benefits keep growing and the negatives seem to be slowly passing by the wayside, as a result using stem cells to take care of our ailments is gaining steam and with any luck it'll change everything for the better.

One of the most common medical problems that has faced people since the begging of time is dental work, while we've made progress in this field we're still somewhat archaic in it as well, relying on drills and pliers to repair damage that has accrued over time. (acedentalresource) There have been tests in order to regrow teeth and surrounding tissue using stem cells for some time now, with positive results it's seemed that stem cell treatment would be the next step in taking care of our teeth and we would finally get past the need for dentures or implants, although the question is how long that may take. (reuters) Last year the move to regrow teeth saw an advancement through the use of stem cells that were derived from urine, not quite the process people want to envision the process happening but it seemed like the most likely way to avoid painful implants or terrible fitting dentures. (nydailynews) A new evolution seems to be on the horizon now using low level lasers and stem cells to regenerate teeth instead of having to replace them, this is a huge development and as someone with dental concerns myself and a severe phobia of dentists, I'm looking forward to the future on this one.
