Suck on That, Dr. Molar, DDS!!!
Forget bone-augers, titanium studs and Glock 20-round-mag-ceramic-jaw-knob bolt-on implants.
Tokyo University of Science PWNZ all!!!
Not only did Takashi Tsuji culture stem cells from the individual mice,
Not only did his team isolate, culture, AND GROW those Two Different Varieties of stem cells -OUTSIDE THE BODY- of the animal,
Not only did they do it in a mold that shaped the development of the material into the EXACT shape needed,
The bodies of the mice fused the tooth units back to the jaw and had begun growing Freaking Goddamn NERVE CELLS Back Into them within 40 days, Yo!
Of course, it’s just a small side-note that the mice were observed not only using their new teeth with full-function, but also artfully flipping-off and Bully-Beatdown-Style-Noogieing the other playground mice who used to make fun of them for being toothless rednecks.
Oh yeah, and that, that thing you didn’t just hear? -The sound of side-effects?…
Because there were none.
