Self-Healing Teeth

Who needs the dentist drill, when this regenerative gel prompts teeth to regrow themselves? Although it doesn't prevent cavities, when the gel is placed next to a cavity, new cells regenerate in about a month.

So instead of that wining drill, your trip to the dentist could just involve a a dab of gel on your infected tooth.

The gel contains the peptide known as MSH (melanocyte-stimulating hormone), that encourages bone regeneration.
