For Your Information Tooth Farms

Forget about implants and dentures.  Replacement teeth of the future may be grown to order.  In a Texas laboratory, there is already a crop of cells that could one day be used to replace lost teeth or grow new ligaments to help re-anchor loose teeth to the jaw.  The long-term goal is to not just grow a new tooth in the lab but to regenerate it right where it is missing.  The tooth would be a perfect cosmetic match since the cells would have a built-in memory of color and shape.  Unfortunately, this technology is still a ways away from actual use.
