Cloned Teeth?!?

I found this article talking about growing new teeth.  I am not quite sure where I stand as far as stem cell research is concerned but this sure sounds like a winner.  Now if we could just figure out how to do it without having too many eccentric old farts out there living for 300 years we would be ok, eh?

  1. I read an article in the July 27, 1998 issue of Business Week magazine about cloning body tissue. In the article it said that Creative BioMolecules Inc in Hopkinton, Massachussetts was working on it.
    Why am I so interested? I have an abcess on the second to the front upper right. The dentist wants to pull it and put in an implant. I have been waiting till they clone teeth. I'd rather go with that option. A reference librarian in Kamloops said she saw a program on tv about cloning teeth.
    I'd much rather have a real tooth in my mouth than all that foreign material.
