According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average American will lose about eight teeth by the time he or she turns 50. Common replacements include dentures, which have been known to erode the underlying bone over time, and dental implants, which are prone to falling out after several years' use. Thus, the ability to regrow a natural tooth, with the accompanying bone, root, and nerves, could provide a significantly healthier alternative for all.
This is about our fifty fourth month test of using LIPUS to regrow pulp, dentin, and possible cementum 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
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 a 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.

Ultrasound is usually thought of as prenatal exams-fuzzy videotapes prized by new parents. Ultrasound equipment has achieved great success in diagnostic imaging because it is safe, portable, and less expensive than other forms of medical imaging.
A less well-known fact is that at much higher intensities, the same acoustic waves used in diagnostic imaging can be used therapeutically. High-intensity ultrasound can interact with tissue to generate heat and mechanical energies that increase blood flow. Increased blood flow benefits are oxygenation of organs and removal of dead tissue. Our body rebuilds itself constantly. We associate a reduction of this process as aging and reduction of our health.
Recently, a Japanese team from the Tokyo University of Science, led by associate professor Takashi Tsuji, reported in Nature Methods that it had successfully re-grown a tooth from cells extracted from mouse embryos. The researchers were able to transplant the tooth into an adult mouse, and the tooth bud continued to grow to full size.
Teeth in mice, much like those in humans, form during embryonic development from two major cell types: epithelial and mesenchymal. Epithelial cells give rise to the outer enamel, while mesenchymal cells form a tooth's inner connective tissue and blood vessels.
Takashi's team isolated both kinds of cells from multiple mouse embryos, then transferred them to a collagen gel culture, in which the cells interacted to form a tooth bud. Researchers then transplanted the bud into the liver of an adult mouse, where the increased blood supply aided further tooth formation. Finally, Takashi inserted the tooth into an empty cavity within the mouse's jaw, in which it grew to full size.
A team at the University of Alberta have miniaturized a technology called low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) The regenerative effect of LIPUS was discovered by Dr Tarak El-Baily while working on rabbit subjects. The inducer is targeted to "massage" the root of a tooth injured either mechanically or by disease. It stimulates new growth and counteracts the destructive process of dental resorption, which often means a damaged tooth has to be completely removed.
Subjects hold a LIPUS source to their mouth twice a day for 1 LIPUS unit timing cycle.
It's envisaged that the device could also be deployed to treat microsomia, a congenital underdevelopment of the lower jaw.
Our experience shows that results are expected to arrive gradually at latest between eighteen and twenty six months. Being able to use the methods on schedule at home in accordance with instructions is the only way to expect success.
Half a million Americans sought medical care abroad in 2006, of which 40 percent were dental tourists, according to the National Coalition on Health Care, an alliance of more than 70 organizations. That’s up from an estimated 150,000 in 2004, said Renee-Marie Stephano, the chief operating officer for the Medical Tourism Association, a nonprofit organization that researches global health care.
Dental bridges and bonding ranked No. 1 and 2 on a list of most sought-after procedures for Americans traveling abroad for medical care, according to a report just published by HealthCare Tourism International, a nonprofit group that tracks health care.
Your oral health affects your general health and vice versa.
Keeping your gums in good shape, may go a long way toward protecting your heart health. Although still in the early stages, research presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2011 in Orlando, Fla., this week shows a tantalizing link between gum disease and heart disease.
They found that:
There are two main groups of family-oriented dental travelers, said Neil Patel, the founder of Health-Care Tourism International. Immigrants have long returned to their countries of origin for dental and medical care and to spend time with relatives. But now there’s a more recent wave of patients, interested in taking their families to a far-flung location to make the best out of what is essentially a rather unpleasant chore.
The advanced technology of making your body rebuild most of your damaged teeth as a first step, and with hope of soon having Americans able to regrow teeth together with their mandibular bone may well create havoc for the foreign dental industry.
Question is how long will it take Americans with problematic teeth to transfer to this Canadian LIPUS treatment? Easily obtained at home at a fraction of the cost of treatment and travel abroad, with patients maintaining control it will create an advantage in the area where Americans rarely have insurance, or only at insanely high cost.
Also how is this going to make the North American continent the new travel destination for people with dental trouble across the world? Not to forget that LIPUS may well become the future’s drug-less healing method of the world once the success of its application has spread widely to be recognized as a superior treatment to all we have heretofore been taken to be the best.
At a time of more frequent recalls for pharmaceutical products because of dangerous side effects here at home the advent of drugless treatment is alluring to us all.

I have had a very good dream about LIPUS the other night, and want to take a moment to inquire about
progress on a device for me. Also: yet another thank you for the suggestion of using toothpaste containing A. C. P.; it has made a noticeable improvement in tooth sensitivity. With best wishes for the new year, I. B.
Thanks for dispatching the LIPUS device so quickly! The timing was excellent as I just had a hefty mercury filling removed (no more migraines).J.B.
