The New Oral Biology; Dental Experts Report on Latest Research at American Dental Association National Media Conference in New York


Imagine a world where baby teeth can be banked for stem cells, tooth whiteners can strengthen and remineralize teeth, saliva can have the potential to diagnose “high-impact” diseases and gene therapy can regenerate bony facial tissue. Dental experts gather to report the latest research on these oral health topics at the American Dental Association’s national media conference in New York City.

Topic Highlights:

-- Banking Baby and Wisdom Teeth for Stem Cells -- baby and wisdom teeth are a non-controversial source of stem cells

-- “White with Might” -- new tooth whiteners that also help to heal teeth may soon be available in over-the-counter gels and strips

-- Technology Allows You to “Spit” an Image of Your Health - saliva has the potential to test for “high-impact” diseases such as breast cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, etc.

-- Tissue Engineering: Seeking to Build New Facial Bone - scientists are investigating new approaches to regenerate human facial skin and bone
