New biomaterials support native dental stem cells inside teeth — and can repair and regenerate your natural dentin.

Researchers from the University of Nottingham and the Wyss Institute at Harvard University developed the synthetic and light-curable material. “The approach could significantly impact millions of dental patients each year by dental fillings that help heal teeth when they are injured from dental disease or dental surgery,” Nottingham says. “These materials may provide an effective and practical approach to allow a patient to regenerate components of their own teeth.”

The team behind the regenerative dental fillings have been awarded a Royal Society of Chemistry prize.
