Japanese scientists grow teeth from single cells (PERFECT TEETH)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Japanese researchers said on Sunday they had grown normal-looking teeth from single cells in lab dishes, and transplanted them into mice.

After growing them, they found their structures had matured into the components that make teeth, including dentin, enamel, dental pulp, blood vessels, and periodontal ligaments.

The teeth grew and developed normally when transplanted into a mouse.
