Latest Tooth development Stories
Along with our big brains and upright posture, thick tooth enamel is one of the features that distinguishes our genus, Homo, from our primate relatives and forebears.
A team of researchers from China's Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health have demonstrated human teeth can be generated by stem cells from a very interesting source: Urine.
Archeologists have long assumed the evolutionary development of strong, thick-enameled teeth coincides with a mammals shift to a diet of field grasses.
Each cusp of our teeth is regulated by genes which carefully control the development.
A group of researchers in Australia and Taiwan has developed a new way to analyze the health of human teeth using lasers. As described in the latest issue of Optics Express, the Optical Society's (OSA) open-access journal
A Japanese study published on Monday showed that researchers have successfully implanted bioengineered seed-like tissue into the jaws of mice, growing new teeth for the rodents.
Same Study Uncovers How Each Tooth Signals the Next to Start Growing ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb.
Scientists have reported new insights gathered from a single gene that could one day be used to help adults grow a new set of teeth.
A paper in this week's PLoS Biology reports that a common gene regulatory circuit controls the development of all dentitions, from the first teeth in the throats of jawless fishes that lived half a billion years ago, to the incisors and molars of modern vertebrates, including you and me.
