Scientists at Tokyo University of Sciences Japan, have created Teeth from Stem cells. Teeth complete with connective fibers and bones have been created using mouse stem cells and successfully transplanted them into mice. This is a great progress in stem cell research and would lead to further innovations.The entire tooth units, which were inserted into lower jaws of mice, attached successfully with jawbones and the rats were able to chew normally.
