Toothless No More – Researchers Using Stem Cells to Grow New Teeth

Toothless No More – Researchers Using Stem Cells to Grow New Teeth | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

The NSU researchers’ approach is to extract stem cells from oral tissue, such as inside a tooth itself, or from bone marrow. After being harvested, the cells are mounted to a polymer scaffold in the shape of the desired tooth. The polymer is the same material used in bioreabsorable sutures, so the scaffold eventually dissolves away. Teeth can be grown separately then inserted into a patient’s mouth or the stem cells can be grown within the mouth reaching a full-sized tooth within a few months.

Perioderm from DENTSPLY/Tulsa Dental Specialties

Perioderm is the latest in a line of grafting products from DENTSPLY/Tulsa Dental Specialties.  It is a soft tissue allograft that was used in this case to treat severe gingival recession. Unlike traditional grafts which require harvesting of tissue from the patient’s palate, Perioderm has the advantage of achieving a predictable, cosmetic result without the pain and discomfort often reported with palatal grafts. Compared to other allografts such as Alloderm, Perioderm also has the advantage of a shorter hydration period (3-5 minutes), no need for refrigeration, and no addition of antibiotics.

Adverse Events Reported After the Use of Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2

Serious adverse events, some of which may require a second operation, can occur after the use of rhBMP-2 ((Infuse Bone Graft; Medtronic Sofamor Danek, Minneapolis, MN))  in oral and maxillofacial procedures. In this analysis graft, failure and pseudarthrosis were more commonly reported after off-label uses of rhBMP-2 than approved uses.

Sialo Technology Announces the New Dental Implant DIVA

Sialo Technology Announces the New Dental Implant DIVA | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

Sialo's Dynamic Implant Valve Approach (DIVA) is a uniquely structured implant that acts as a drug delivery system post-procedure.

 

Indication:

Augmentation and closed sinus elevation procedures can be performed via implant and simultaneously with its insertion.

 

Implant can be used even when sinus elevation procedures are not required. The implant can be used in a standard fashion due to the complete sealing of its internal structure.

 

Intraoperative or postoperative delivery of therapeutic agents via implant for treatment of inflammation surrounding the implant without the need for secondary surgical treatments.

 

Full visualization of the bone tissue surrounding the implant can be achieved by using a dental endoscope (also developed by Sialo) as part of the medical procedure.
