Patients of a Greenville, SC Dentist May Soon Benefit from Lasers
People often opt for lasers treatments for their positive effects on the body, but according to a new research, growing a tooth may already be possible by using low-power lasers. Aside from the common dental uses of lasers for therapy and teeth whitening, the beams coming from the less powerful dental lasers could help activate dental stem cells, which would enable damaged teeth to regrow. The experiment conducted in the research mentioned above used lab rats as their test subjects. The scientists filled the rats’ molars, and one molar was laser-treated while the other was not. After 12 weeks of monitoring, they found out that dentins were growing better on the laser-treated molar.
