Why Can’t We Regrow Teeth?

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Regrowing teeth would solve so many problems! Many animals are able to, so why not humans? Anthony takes a look at how scientists are trying to change this.

Specialized Stem Cell Niche Enables Repetitive Renewal Of Alligator Teeth

“Reptiles and fish have robust regenerative powers for tooth renewal. However, extant mammals can either renew their teeth one time (diphyodont dentition) or not at all (monophyodont dentition).”

“Alligators may help scientists learn how to stimulate tooth regeneration in people, according to new research led by the Keck School of Medicine of USC.”

I actually did grow back a tooth. When I was little I chomped down too hard on a mint and it broke out my newly growing adult tooth. I never told anyone about it and my dentists didn't even notice. It took a good 5 or 6 years, but another tooth eventually replaced it. I call it my elder tooth, lol.
Honestly, our entire bodies can heal themselves – bones and all – so I don't see why tf our teeth can't. Tis a sham, I say.

What is knowingly ignored each time is that it takes a lot of time, considering that a human tooth takes about 5 years to develop and not 2 months as "scientists" would like us to believe. In contrast, for 15 years now we have been able to place a root-shaped immediate implant in less than a minute ( see BioImplant on YouTube).

Broke my teeth, wish i could grow them back

There is a solution to regrow out teeth. How in the video was told, there is a system we can switch on. Dr. Tom Kolso an american dentist discovered systems in the body which we can restart to make us younger, help new tissues to grow in the body and let grow new teeth also. It's called Happy Mouth.

I swear when I was a child, my bottom left second premolar grew out, fell off, and was replaced three times. I know I could be mistaken, or I could have had a weird mutation or supernumerary teeth.

I don’t know if dentists can really identify them just by look. I saved most of my baby teeth including those second premolars, in a container along with my nail clippings. But my sister found them, thought they were gross and threw them out.

It is possible. Had a permanent tooth die, get rotten, caused alot of pain and had to be removed. That was a few years ago. About a few months I started feeling something boney at the back of my upper jaw. At first I was worried my gums were exposing my upper jaw, but it felt rough and jagged, not like the jaw would feel. So I went to the mirror and looked around, and I saw I was regrowing the tooth I lost years ago. No, it's not a perfect duplicate. Its the same length and width, but its only about half as tall as the old one. Kinda weird I know

I had fixed three Three teeth. Can I get back the original normal tooth? Even if I fixed please tell me I don't need a miracle to make this happen with science. But I really want to get my natural teeth back as he created it.
