What do dentists have to do with stem cells? They may provide a patient's last chance to bank potentially life-saving tissue.

Researchers discover lasers can regenerate dentin

A team of researchers at Harvard has discovered that it may be possible to regrow dentin in teeth—through the power of lasers.

Researchers use human urine to create new teeth

A new study published in Cell Regeneration Journal reports that stem cells collected from human urine can be used to create tooth-like structures.

The study, which was conducted by Duanqing Pei and colleagues, gives rise to the hope that the technique might one day be used to help grow new teeth for dental patients.

How to incorporate Provia Labs’ Store-A-Tooth program into your practice

Stem cells in general are not a new concept. They’ve been included in medical journals for about 100 years and the definition of stem cells is just about as old—undifferentiated cells that not only have the capacity for self-renewal, but also the ability to produce specific cells needed for a wide range of tissue regeneration and therapeutic applications.
