In the first human study of its kind, researchers found that using stem cells to re-grow craniofacial tissues–mainly bone–proved quicker, more effective and less invasive than traditional bone regeneration treatments. Researchers from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and the Michigan Center for Oral Health Research partnered with Ann Arbor-based Aastrom Biosciences Inc. in the clinical trial, which involved 24 patients who required jawbone reconstruction after...

A small study has found a therapy that helps regenerate receding gum tissue seems to hold up over the long term, and might even offer patients an alternative to more-extensive dental surgery. One option to treat receding gum tissue is undergoing surgery to replace tissue lost from around the teeth and their roots.  Traditionally, that involves taking tissue from the roof of the patients' mouth and "grafting" it onto the receding gums. The surgery also requires stitches in the roof of...

Five-year follow-up study observed marginal bone remodeling occurs between implant placement and prosthesis placement.Dental implants are frequently used as a replacement for missing teeth in order to restore the patient's tooth function and appearance. Previous research demonstrates that the placement of a dental implant disrupts the host tissue in the area of the implant, so practitioners often focus their treatment planning to carefully maintain the patient's bone and gum tissue...
