Claim: Device Regrows Teeth Naturally, Repairs Bad Teeth

There are many news articles about a device that can supposedly regrow teeth. Reports started about 13 years ago in 2006. Below is an audio interview with Dr. Tarek El-Bialy, an update from 2014 the summary of which he says at the end is, “With LIPUS there is no way we can create new teeth right now. … It stimulates the root to grow, not the whole tooth. Maybe in the future using stem cells, (assisted by LIPUS) but you have to have to have the specific cells that create dentin, cementum and enamel.”

Broke a Tooth? Grow it Back..
EDMONTON – Long used as a test for pregnant women, ultrasound may soon have a new role — growing teeth.

Long used as a test for pregnant women, ultrasound may soon have a new role — growing teeth. The idea originated with Dr. Tarek El-Bialy, an Egyptian-born orthodontist who joined the university’s faculty of dentistry a year ago.  El-Bialy has shown in earlier research that ultrasound waves, the high frequency sound waves normally used for diagnostic imaging, help bones heal and tooth material grow.

“I was using ultrasound to stimulate bone formation after lower-jaw lengthening in rabbits,” El-Bialy said in an interview Tuesday.  To his surprise, not only did he help heal the rabbits’ jaws after the surgery, but their teeth started to grow as well.

He later did a human study to see if ultrasound could prevent damage to the roots of teeth when people wear braces. Braces force the teeth to move, and that can cause root damage.  That study, published in 2004, showed that a tooth getting a daily shot of ultrasound was protected from damage, and in fact had more dental tissue than before …

Smile! A New Canadian Tool Can Regrow Teeth Say Inventors

Snaggle-toothed hockey players and sugar lovers may soon rejoice as Canadian scientists said they have created the first device able to re-grow teeth and bones. The researchers at the University of Alberta in Edmonton filed patents earlier this month in the United States for the tool based on low-intensity pulsed ultrasound technology after testing it on a dozen dental patients in Canada.

“Right now, we plan to use it to fix fractured or diseased teeth, as well as asymmetric jawbones, but it may also help hockey players or children who had their tooth knocked out,” Jie Chen, an engineering professor and nano-circuit design expert, told AFP.

Chen helped create the tiny ultrasound machine that gently massages gums and stimulates tooth growth from the root once inserted into a person’s mouth, mounted on braces or a removable plastic crown. The wireless device, smaller than a pea, must be activated for 20 minutes each day for four months to stimulate growth, he said. It can also stimulate jawbone growth to fix a person’s crooked smile and may eventually allow people to grow taller by stimulating bone growth, Chen said.

Dentist, Engineer Team up to Regrow Teeth

CBC News

A tiny ultrasound device could help people regrow teeth, researchers at the University of Alberta say. The prototype device offers a way to reform human dental tissue for the first time, the team said Wednesday. Everyone from hockey players to children who knock out a tooth could benefit. The treatment, called low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, massages the gums to stimulate jaws, encourage growth in the roots of teeth and aid healing in dental tissue.

“If the root is broken, it can now be fixed,” said Dr. Tarak El-Bialy of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. “And because we can regrow the teeth root, a patient could have his own tooth rather than foreign objects in his mouth.”

EDMONTON – Long used as a test for pregnant women, ultrasound may soon have a new role — growing teeth. A team of University of Alberta researchers is seeking a U.S. patent on a tiny device that will sit inside the mouth and beam ultrasound waves at teeth. The device won’t help Ryan Smyth, the Edmonton Oiler who lost three teeth in the hockey playoffs, but it may prevent tooth damage that can occur from wearing braces. … El-Bialy also has work to do. So far, he has been able to stimulate growth of the inner part of teeth, but not the enamel. That’s why he can’t regrow Ryan Smyth’s teeth. He’s starting new research to try to use ultrasound to repair cracked or broken teeth. The researchers estimate their LIPUS device will be ready for public use within two years.

I have not seen a single tooth re-growing device appear for the public since this article came out. Bring that new tooth grower out for us, it’s time!

Yes, it is possible to repair and even regrow your teeth using a completely natural method that is actually based on science. A team of Alberta researchers applied for a patent that claims they created a miniature device that will stimulate the jaw bones and gums around the affected tooth. Using the low intensity ultrasound technology, they claim they were able to regrow the root of a tooth and stimulate tooth grow and repair.
Although the technology is not going to be in your local dental office for a few years, I believe we don’t have to wait for it and apply the common sense to do the whole process ourselves. First, we need a low frequency ultrasound source and from all the legally (you can’t buy a real ultrasound machine unless you are a doctor) available sources two come to mind.

First is a Novasonic Massager that can generate a sound vibration of 20,000 Hertz. It is not your regular massager and all you have to do is slightly touch the skin and you can feel the sound waves go deep within your body. I have one myself and love using it.

Second device is more sophisticated and you can find them selling on Ebay. The link searches for the Ebay results for “ultrasound massager” and you will see a bunch of them selling from $100 to $150. They are much more powerful then a Novasonic model and can generate up to 3-5 mHz frequency, so be very careful when using one. You should get one that generates only 1-2 mHz, as 3-5 mHz vibrations don’t go very far – about 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch deep.

So, what I do is I apply the sound waves from the device to my teeth and gums for a few minutes every day and get a gentle but thorough massage this way.

via How to regrow or repair bad teeth naturally.

I have a tooth I’d like to regrow.  Has this worked for anyone? I want to do this so if any doctors know of cancer risks from ultrasounding your tooth roots and jaw, speak up. Or if the people in Alberta have any tips based on their research, let us know. This from Science Daily:

ScienceDaily (June 28, 2006) — Hockey players, rejoice! A team of University of Alberta researchers has created technology to regrow teeth – the first time scientists have been able to reform human dental tissue. … Using low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS), Dr. Tarak El-Bialy from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and Drs. Jie Chen and Ying Tsui from the Faculty of Engineering have created a miniaturized system-on-a-chip that offers a non-invasive and novel way to stimulate jaw growth and dental tissue healing.

“It’s very exciting because we have shown the results and actually have something you can touch and feel that will impact the health of people in Canada and throughout the world,” said Chen, who works out of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the National Institute for Nanotechnology.

The wireless design of the ultrasound transducer means the miniscule device will be able to fit comfortably inside a patient’s mouth while packed in biocompatible materials. The unit will be easily mounted on an orthodontic or “braces” bracket or even a plastic removable crown. The team also designed an energy sensor that will ensure the LIPUS power is reaching the target area of the teeth roots within the bone. TEC Edmonton, the U of A’s exclusive tech transfer service provider, filed the first patent recently in the U.S. Currently, the research team is finishing the system-on-a-chip and hopes to complete the miniaturized device by next year.

“If the root is broken, it can now be fixed,” said El-Bialy. “And because we can regrow the teeth root, a patient could have his own tooth rather than foreign objects in his mouth.” – ScienceDaily

I started writing this many years ago but gave up on regrowing a tooth myself. Dr. El-Bialy said you need a minimum of 20 minutes per day and also mentioned that in his research he’s seen a proliferation of cancer cells, so LIPUS is not recommended for people who had per-existing cancer.

Here is Dr. El-Bialy’s profile including his current work. Here is the patent application for the ultrasound device that can regrow teeth.

Ultrasound works to regrow teeth according to this site which does not seem to have been recently updated:

This is about our eighteen month test of using LIPUS to regrow pulp and dentin at an accelerated rate for mature and senior people. The process invigorates the inside of our teeth for increased healthier tissue. The added growth of dentin bolsters the enamel as it was when you were a younger person. In addition to the above an increase of density in mandible bone and upper tooth support solidifies tooth roots. Our experience shows a solid bite equal to that in our teenage years. The ringing of teeth when biting down hard, which we had forgotten entirely, was back again. Professor Paul Sharpe, Head of the Department of Craniofacial Development, King’s College London stated: “A key medical advantage of this new technology is that a living tooth can preserve the health of the surrounding tissues much better than artificial prosthesis. Teeth are living, and they are able to respond to a person’s bite. They move, and in doing so they maintain the health of the surrounding gums and teeth.”

At the present time our technology is at the stage where regrowing teeth is limited to teeth with live roots. The inner part of the tooth, dentin is alive and in regrowing will expand into its initial, youthful proportions. The dentin thereby puts equal pressure on the Enamel part of the tooth as in the younger person. This naturally recurring rejuvenation has a propensity to expel such parts of the tooth enamel which have previously been broken, which may result in its loss. Our experience is based on our use of this methodology and equipment and is now in its third year. Any person planning to use this Canadian LIPUS technique can inquire with questions to our test section. – hopp , lipus.org

This is an update from 2014, including an audio interview that said they were in clinical trials and the technology should be available in a few years. It sounds like the only use at first will be to keep tooth roots from shortening as they are moved by dental braces.

A few days ago we got a comment by someone calling themselves Pete who linked to an interview given where the Canadian Dr. Tarek El-Bialy was being interviewed on his Ultrasound Device & technology to use to regrow teeth, but stimulating the root of the teeth. … Originally we had written about the technology in a very old post “Teeth Regrowth Using Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound, LIPUS“. The researcher we mentioned in that article was a Dr. Jie Chen, also in Canada who claimed that they could use Ultrasound to not just make bones heal fractures but make people grow taller, which was something that was edited into the Wikipedia article on LIPUS (Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound).

However, the technology of LIPUS on nerve tissue and teeth regeneration is much more promising. As Dr. El-Bialy (Associate Professor of Orthodontics and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alberta, Canada) seems to suggest, LIPUS can regenerate damaged nerves and root pulp.

You can download the MP3 of that interview wth Dr. El-Bialy Available Here

(Source)

Dr. El-Bialy says in the audio interview in 2014 that LIPUS can regenerate damaged dentin and they are working on regeneration of pulp as well. It won’t bother a filling, he says, it only works in the roots, the part of the tooth that is inside the bone.

 

What about regrowing the crown, the hard part of the tooth that we see?!

That’s the big bad claim in 2006 that got everyone interested in this technology. Regrowing teeth does not mean just regrowing roots, it means regrowing whole teeth. Frustratingly, Dr. El-Bialy when asked in the 2014 interview about growing enamel, acts as if he didn’t know where enamel comes from back in 2006.

“The Crown material part is enamel, which is … tough, because once the enamel is … formed … the cells that form the enamel … very hard to regenerate. It’s not like odontoblasts, cementoblasts, exists ever in the teeth … so … it might happen in the future …”

Excuse my annoyance, but damn it. Yeah, we who follow this kind of science knew the origins of tooth enamel back in 2006. There were papers on these cells, ameloblasts, and enamel formation back in 1994. Didn’t Dr. El-Bialy supposedly regrow teeth, whole teeth, in rabbits? Well, if we go back and read closely, the only claim was that he regrew dental tissue, not whole teeth.

Dr. El-Bialy first discovered new dental tissue was being formed after using ultrasound on rabbits. In one study, published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, El Bialy used ultrasound on one rabbit incisor and left the other incisor alone. After seeing the surprising positive results, he moved onto humans and found similar results.

(Archive Source)

Argh. What did we think, that the ultrasound stimulated cells to make tooth enamel? Actually yes, that’s what we thought, that LIPUS somehow triggered new ameloblasts to make new enamel, as well as odontoblasts to make new dentin.

Ameloblasts are cells which secrete the enamel proteins enamelin and amelogenin which will later mineralize to form enamel, the hardest substance in the human body. (Source)

The formation of tooth enamel takes place before the tooth erupts in a confined extracellular environment between dentin and ameloblast cells (enamel-making cells). A series of physiological and chemical events including gene expression, protein secretion, protein folding and assembly, mineral growth, and protein degradation are involved in making enamel. Because mature enamel post-tooth eruption does not contain cells and does not remodel, synthetic enamel is necessary for enamel regeneration. (Source)

The cells that make enamel are sensitive to the environment, so it did not seem far fetched.

Ameloblasts are sensitive to environmental influences that perturb the requisite processes of amelogenesis. Over 100 environmental stressors can cause enamel defects (Suckling and Pearce, 1984). (Source)

And there was research that odontoblasts can make new dentin.

… Odontoblasts Secrete New Dentin after Superficial Tooth Injury (Source)

As it turns out the phrase “regrowing teeth” used in the media in 2006 should have rightly been “regrowing parts of teeth” not whole teeth. He sees regeneration in the dentin in the roots (the hidden longest parts of the tooth), but in the 2014 interview says he has not seen the regeneration of the dentin move up into the rest of the tooth, perhaps because the crown material may not be a good conductor of the sound to get at the dentin it surrounds. Crums.

Well, it could still repair broken teeth at the roots then, perhaps, by shaking up the structure of the tooth with sound. It makes sense to me that a little physical damage would trigger regrowth, but this is something you’d want the benefit of research in determining what works and what is safe. Here are the technical specs that seem best for regrowing teeth:

Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) is a medical technology, generally using 1.5 MHz frequency pulses, with a pulse width of 200 μs, repeated at 1 kHz, at a spatial average and temporal average intensity of 30 mW/cm2, 20 minutes/day.

Applications of LIPUS include:

  • Promoting bone-fracture healing.
  • Treating orthodontically induced root resorption.
  • Regrow missing teeth.
  • Enhancing mandibular growth in children with hemifacial microsomia.
  • Promoting healing in various soft tissues such as cartilage, inter vertebral disc.
  • Improving muscle healing after laceration injury.

Researchers at the University of Alberta have used LIPUS to gently massage teeth roots and jawbones to cause growth or regrowth, and have grown new teeth in rabbits after lower jaw surgical lengthening (Distraction osteogenesis) (American Journal of Orthodontics, 2002). As of June 2006, a larger device has been licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada for use by orthopedic surgeons. A smaller device that fits on braces has also been developed but is still in the investigational stage and is not available to the public.

Here’s another site with a LIPUS device described, a bone healing device.

Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS) is a medical technology generally using 1.5 MHZ (1.5 million cycles/sec) pulses with a pulse width of 200 μs, repeated at 1 kHz, at an intensity of 30 mw/cm2, 20 minutes/day.  The LIPUS treatment characteristics correspond to a device, the Exogen 4000, manufactured by the Smith & Nephew Company, which is FDA approved to treat certain types of bone breaks which are slow to heal.  The unit will set you back about $4k if you lack insurance.  (Source)

Will a tooth regrowing device ever be available? I hope so, but after over ten years of waiting, I seriously doubt it from LIPUS tecnology. Here is something that looks and sounds more promising:

“A new technique pioneered at the Tissue Engineering, and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory of Dr. Jeremy Mao, Edward V. Zegarelli Professor of Dental Medicine, and a professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia University can orchestrate the body’s stem cells to migrate to three-dimensional scaffold that is infused with the growth factor. This can yield an anatomically correct tooth in as soon as nine weeks once implanted in the mouth.” (Dentistry iQ)

That is right. Scientists can help the body grow a new tooth in about two months. Gone will be the days of dentures and painful tooth implants.

(Source)

The work of Dr. Mao and his laboratory, however, holds manifold promise: a more natural process, faster recovery times, and a harnessing of the body’s potential to regrow tissue that will not give out and could ultimately last the patient’s lifetime.

By homing stem cells to a scaffold made of natural materials and integrated in surrounding tissue, there is no need to use harvested stem cell lines, or create a an environment outside of the body (e.g., a Petri dish) where the tooth is grown and then implanted once it has matured.

The tooth instead can be grown “orthotopically,” or in the socket where the tooth will integrate with surrounding tissue in ways that are impossible with hard metals or other materials.

“A key consideration in tooth regeneration is finding a cost-effective approach that can translate into therapies for patients who cannot afford or who aren’t good candidates for dental implants,” Dr. Mao said. “Cell-homing-based tooth regeneration may provide a tangible pathway toward clinical translation.”

This study is published in the Journal of Dental Research, a top journal in the field of dentistry.

(DentistryIQ)

The tooth is an organ, a rather complicated one at that. Some organs regenerate naturally if given the right conditions. The human liver is famous in this ability, but heart, kidneys, endometrium, vas deferens, fingers and toes have been observed to do some self-regeneration. Using a technique with a scaffold populated by stem cells, several human organs have been induced to regenerate successfully. These include:

So far, not teeth, however.  I still find the idea and promise of regenerative medicine exciting, but there should be strong warnings for researchers against making any claims in the media like “a few years from now” when the truth may well be closer to a few decades or more.

The year 2020 is here, but we still can’t re-grow complete human teeth.

I’m amazed, absolutely amazed. In 2002, I went to the dentist to have a tooth pulled because I thought that the infection my tooth had only option was to have it pulled. Fortunately, I was able to save the root and my dentist did a root canal as well as bridge work. Last month, 8 years later, pieces of the bridge work started falling off until the whole thing fell off. Mind you, I did not want to go back to my dentist to have this taken care of because this is very expensive work. So I decided to leave my root unattended until I managed to save some money for dental work. Because of the hollow space, my tongue would naturally start touching the root and the amazing happened. After I thought I had no other option than to have the root extracted or have another bridge work, which I did not want, the amazing happened, little by little I noticed that the rooth was growing a tooth. A perfectly healthy tooth! I was so alarmed at this that I did some research on this and found out that as long as there is root left, and the area is massaged constantly, a new teeth/tooth will regrow. Amazing, I’m just astounded at how our bodies are made….

If it had a root canal then it’s dead. You’re talking nonsense.

Reply
Mark January 21, 2011 at 2:06 pm

Not exactly speaking nonsense, Had something similar happen. Had a root canal, but the tooth had 4 and they did 3 of the 3/4 of the way. After about 8 years my crown popped off and the post came out, turns out that the root had started to grow and created pressure that cause the post to come out. Unfortunately one of them got infected so I had them redo the root canal. About 6 months later the post got loose again and discovered the 4th one that had been hidden before was creating a new surface under the crown/post and allowed seepage. The dentist was upset that the first dentist had missed this and done such a horrible job of the root canal and said I should get my money back for the job. So I went ahead and had the other root canal done and returned to the other dentist, who had already retired. I felt stupid when he said I was suppose to return as he had only removed the damaged part of the pulp and left room for the pulp to try to return. Which happened some years later. looking back on my records he had me schedule to come back in 1 year for an update because I had agreed to a clinical trial. He told me that a few people teeth could recover this way. Now I feel stupid for not following up with his clinical trial at the time. I don’t think the odd are good, but there are a few of us that has the root (if some is left) regrow. I do know that about 7 years later I started to use an ultrasonic toothbrush but don’t know if this had any effect(affect).

Actually, if you did your home work, you would find that they did their home work and first had great success regrowing teeth in rats or mice then did in fact go to clinical human trials and had great success also. It is a PROVEN science now. “HOWEVER”…you also cannot just go buy a vibrator and do the same job. They also in a manner of speaking, seed the tooth root with a prepared substance which helps also to get the desired result. But it does require “both” to get the result.

I’ve been thinking about buying one of these devices for awhile now, but before any critics jump on this idea I just want to share some personal experience. First of all I stopped using floride awhile ago. Last year I cracked one of my molars from grinding my teeth. It’s only been the past 2 years or so since I started grinding from stress. A mouth guard offered little relief. Next thing I know I’ve cracked my tooth down the middle half way down, and am in a dentist office getting my tooth drilled down and some filling put in. During the process the dentist created another crack in the tooth. I was brushing 3-4 times a day with Sensodyne to keep the pain at bay. Plus ibuprofen. I started doing my research on tooth regrowth. Found alot of interesting info including the LIPUS. My first step was to toss all flouride products. I, my wife, and son started using an olive oil based tooth brushing soap. After about 3 months I noticed the crack through my tooth was moving away from the center. A year later it’s only a small line. You ever notice if a light is shined on your teeth you see fine lines? Yeah, those mostly went away too. My wife and son had a visit 2 months ago and a perfect bill of health for their teeth and gums. My next step is LIPUS. Maybe I’ll come back here and message when my filling falls out and the tooth regrows. P.S. My sisters a dental student, and my brother was a dentist. Can’t deny what they see though 😉

been wathing this- 5 teeth could use replacement so the miraculous healing technique is encouraging- at least for me to keep the teeth in as long as possible to retain the root. can’t afford squat right now and curse those constant sweet binges- i would still have perfect teeth otherwise. anyway what Soledad said was pretty suspicous to me- i mean a route canal invulse filling up the nerve and vein structures – like if you stuffed an animal so i could asume it would be dead. but these doughts can be relieved with a progressive youtube dock so if anyone has got a sonic ultra thingy and it trying to fix there teeth, try and do us a photo doc- video is prefered to show no trickery!

i wish to repair my teeth naturally, but for the moment my teeth have many white fillings, and i’m still going to the dentist. I have tooth soap in the house (some say it’s good b/c it doesn’t contain glycerin), but i think i overused it (have put 2-3 strands on the toothbrush), so i quickly (in just a few weeks) got cavities between many teeth. I stopped using the soap. Now i’m using a jason’s toothpaste (which i think has glycerin), just to use something. But no fluoride.

i see that the information is out there (here) so it’s nice to know we CAN do it, but found no tried-and-true solutions yet. I’ll wait.
The Golden Age is approaching fast. It’s up to us to make it happen, to materialize the opportunity. There’s lots of spiritual stuff surrounding us, you know that, eh? 🙂

I healed my teeth by lightly brushing two or three times per day with Pure Xylitol (not the mouth rinse).Buy the “packets”like sugar comes in.

Xylito is wood grain alcohol but you will think it is sugar (but it is not sugar!)”taste Great”too!
When I can’t brush I even pour on tounge and crunch the granules up in between my teeth and swish the product throughly around and between my teeth for about three or four minutes then spit.

In the AM and PM simply pour the packet in palm of hand dip a “dry” tooth brush in the xylitol power and brush.
(no water needed)A flood of natural saliva will kick in and do the work!

Warning Xylito is safe for humans but is highly toxic to our pets.This has to do with their liver function.

No kidding I have found that xylitol will erase small cavitys and will stop a large cavity in it’s tracks allowing the dental hole to actually fill itself naturally to a great extent and repair itself to a large degree in a very short time span.

I have also found any large decay that might be left behind stops growing immediately and becomes hard and useful for chewing again.

PS: You will also immediately notice a pinker tounge and fresher breath the very next morning you awake.

$60 bucks will currently buy a years supply of pure xylito in small paper packets (just like sugar on a resturant table is packed.
And for me $60 is cheaper than a dental bill and drill any day.
Below is where I purchase my packets of xylitol.

Dennis February 5, 2011 at 5:51 am

Ileana You are most welcome!
Stick with it because xylitol begins working day one by stripping (all) of the tarter away from teeth.Therefore the bacteria that feed on that tarter have no way to grow. This means there is no acid left behind on the tooth enamel which is what causes a cavity to form in the first place!(whitens too with out harming enamel)

PS: For tooth abscess:100%liquid “golden seal will totally kill any infection usually over night.(comes with it’s own dropper.)
If the mouth is severly tender or(in case the affected area is an upper tooth)simply use 3 to 6 drops mixed in with a “mouth wash bottle cap”filled with water. Swish solution for a couple of minutes and spit.Then place fingers on the out side of jaw and press the infection right out from under the affected tooth.Do this several times a day if possible and always at bedtime (till infection is gone).
Golden seal was first used by native american indians for oral issues (including mouth cancers) and was also used as a natural yellow dye.Don’t worry it will brush off the teeth easily. After swishing “only spit” the solution do not rinse as this dilutes it’s medicinal effects.(works under caps and crowns too)

If ever in a tooth ache 911 emergency!!!!
Place a slice of fresh cut garlic clove on top of or below the hurting tooth and gently bite down.Garlic is a natural antibotic-pain killer!
The pain will subside almost immediately.
(This also works under caps and crowns)
After a minute or so remove the garlic from mouth and if it’s time for bed you will be able to sleep all night pain free.Do not hold raw fresh garlic in mouth for too long or it may irritate the jaw!
For simply restoring teeth from cavity damage remember to stick with xylitol,and ignore other teeth healing remedies because xylitol works it really works!

Dennis,

Xylitol does not dissolve tarter, I see no way it could …but Periogen will do that for you.

Also, bacteria don’t eat tarter. Tarter is mineral deposits, the reason dentists scrape teeth during cleanings. Tarter above the gum line is called calculus and it does give you more bacteria, not because they feed on it, but because it gives them more places to hide.

I’ve seen no double blind placebo controlled studies show that Goldenseal helps at all. Prolonged use will cause hypertension, vasoconstriction and diarrhea.

Also, NEVER apply garlic directly to your skin! It will cause lesions. You’ll just be in more pain. Use salt water instead of garlic.

But so far, you seem to be right about the benefits of xylitol, and I can’t find any significant dangers, other than to dog livers.

– In one study, those who chewed 100% xylitol pellet gum had the lowest risk of cavities.

– “small glucose and insulin responses also suggest that lactitol and xylitol are suitable components of the diet for diabetic patients. ” – ajcn

Xeno February 6, 2011 at 6:49 pm

I don’t know why but my instinct is to avoid xylitol. I have no cavities and I use tea tree oil mouth wash and from time to time periogen, or 3% hydrogen peroxide, or my limited supply of the no longer available novamin.

So, could an ultrasound generator heal little chips on a tooth?

Reply
Xeno January 15, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Not as far as I know. The ultrasound stimulates the tooth to grow from the base up and the part you see with the chip is already formed. It can remineralize but there are no living cells there to repair the enamel.

Hi Carole,

Just researching it myself, and have some new information. This is what I have so far. Please see the links (and key notes I’ve taken from them) below. I’d say make a program for yourself from the information below. Pray, visualize, and don’t eat anything that would decrease health. Get support from a friend, loved one, family, whoever you are able to.

1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2XIMJMOQTA&list=UUAedoHBH8L751GHlUNb5OYg&index=2&feature=plcp

have a diet high in good fats and in nutrients. reduce sugars.

eat from the 4 groups from Weston A Price (google him):

add key supplements like
E3 Live – v mineral dense
colostrum ~ 2 Tbs/day
pasture-raised cow butter + fermented cod liver oil

flossing/ brushing – keep the bacteria level in the mouth down (dare I say tongue scrape too – get a gadget – check google or your local health food store)

clacking or tapping the teeth- stimulates the teeth and the kidney too. do up to 3 sets of 9 or 18 times

2. from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5zsJYGIwGY&feature=related
look into eating for beauty by david wolfe
supplements like silica, MSM

oil pulling – google it. I’ve done it. I think there is something to it.

4. Check out Dr Fuller’s work

5. Look into raw food/raw paleo diet.

I’d say pick one or two, some combine, some don’t, like raw food and cooked options, but I think there IS a way.

I’m working on it too – don’t give up!

Some more:

In Chinese medicine the kidneys are believed to be the main driver in the task of rebuilding the teeth. Healing techniques which employ the regenerative power of the kidneys include certain qi gong routines, yoga routines, certain herbal and animal foods, and healing through tantric sex (sounds like fun!). For some people, the kidneys may be the primary vehicle for healing the dentition. Read more at:

http://forum.lef.org/default.aspx?f=43&m=17576 and search for the words above.

same page:

The style of healing best suited to a particular person can be one of many. Employing several strategies in combination may be the best approach as it avoids the risks that occur if a single bodily system is employed alone.

From all my healing, I’ve learned that there is a way. But you usually need to go out of your way, get past frustrations, ignore naysayers, think outside the box!

1. Research all the ways that you can do what you want – in this case, heal a broken or missing tooth. There’s lots out there.

2. Choose a method, a healer, or work with a friend/spouse. Write it down, post it on the wall. Decide on how long you will spend time on it. Even 5 minutes is good.

3. Do a little of your program every day until you get your desired result. Don’t be discouraged. It may take years. Or just months. It may vary. Sometimes prayer is needed.

Don’t give up. Choose your method, start it up, and persist.

I have a friend who has terrible meth mouth. Will this method work if the gum socket is empty? He is understandably ashamed of his teeth (about eight remaining to date) and I heard that people without their teeth are more likely to die–I like him, and he’s quite good-looking and youthful aside from the dreadful teeth.

In tests it probably worked too well. They tried to regrow a tooth and the new tooth grew a whole new person attached to it. Since this type of instant fast-grow cloning makes women obsolete for procreation, they are keeping the test results under wrap. They might be working on having it just re-grow a person’s own organs. A full success would be a kind of disaster. Immortality would mess up the planet… unless only a few people, like me, were immortal.

I am a young guy aged 21 down at South Africa, my tooth got broken in half during 2007 and it started losing pieces till 2010 when only the inner part(nerves) was left. According to may little research so far I found that for this device to be usable, I should remove left nerves so to start a re-generation of the new natural tooth. What I would like to know is how much is it estimated to cost and when is it estimated to be on the market. You may directly e-mail me or post a replay here in case anyone can make any clarity on that.

I purchased an Exogen LIPUS device and used it consistently, 20 minutes a day as recommended. I held it to my face with ultrasound gel covering both tooth and root every night before bed. The goal was to regrow a right lower molar with a white ceramic filling in it that would cause me occasional discomfort (not extreme pain) After about two and a half months of use the pain had disappeared but saw no change in the filling (didn’t seem to be pushing out). Life got extremely busy and I have not used the device for some time, consistency is difficult when you have to hold an ultrasound transducer to your face for 20 minutes every day.
I’m looking forward to Smile Sonica finally releasing a proper oral version of this device as it seems to have been in the works for many years (not sure what the hold up is, emailed them several times and have received one short response, no indication as to real ease date)
I hope this has been useful to everyone here, I wrote this response because I have not found after much research any of its kind. If there is anyone out there with more experience than me/success I welcome them to share their storey.

Now I started developing these symtomps after my root canal. Anyways I want to remove my root canal tooth because I believe it to be the cause of my symptoms. Is it possible for me to regrow that tooth after having a root canal? I don’t want a bridge or implant. Anyone know of any other options? Thanks

It is beyond my belief that it is there (and speaking of this, if i may, if i whey – don’t mind my bad teeth, they don’t know what they’re saying – i’ll take the chance in this little parenthesis to spread the word: ICELAND IS IN THE WORKS TO ELIMINATE MONEY, TO BECOME FREE.
