A team of interdisciplinary researchers at KU Leuven University have taken a step closer to being able to regrow teeth from the root using 3D printing.

Dental conditions resulting from trauma and developmental anomalies can often affect developing permanent teeth, particularly in children, leading to tissue or even whole tooth loss. To combat this, dental tissue engineering has arisen as a potential means of repair, regeneration, and even tooth replacement through the fabrication of bioengineered “tooth-root”.
