New Natural Tooth Repair Method

Researchers at King's College in London have used the Alzheimer's drug Tideglusib to regenerate stem cells in tooth pulp, stimulating the self-repair of large cavities. By applying a small molecule of the drug to a collagen sponge in the tooth, the researchers found that over a period of two weeks the sponge had been replaced by new dentin, naturally repairing the tooth. As the drug has already been tested clinically, and the collagen sponge is a natural compound already in clinical use, it is expected this method will move swiftly into trials.
