According to British scientists, soon dental fillings will not be needed for the treatment of tooth caries. Dentin will recover itself under the influence of a special substance.
The experts of King’s College in London are just now engaged in the development and testing of a chemical compound. It will help the cover of teeth to be restored.
The substance was named Tideglusib. It has already been tested in experimental rodents. In the study, the researchers found that it was possible to heal the small holes in the teeth of mice.
Tideglusib increases the growth of stem cells in the pulp. Today, the specialists of London College are able to restore the hole in the tooth of a mouse, which diameter is 0.13 mm.
