Boston -- Researchers at The Forsyth Institute have successfully used tissue engineering techniques to regenerate mammalian tooth crowns containing dentin and enamel—a feat that could, one day, lead to a biological tooth substitute to replace lost or missing human teeth. The research also suggests the existence of dental stem cells—which could be key to bioengineering human teeth.
