Submission + - Researchers Use Stem Cells To Grow New Teeth (singularityhub.com)

After extracting stem cells from existing oral tissue, the cells are molded into the shape of a tooth using a polymer scaffold. Using this method, teeth have already been successfully grown in mice and monkeys, with human clinical trials under way.
