Tooth regeneration gel to kill off fillings forever?

2 July 2010

RenStimpyToothFillings. They're a laugh a minute aren't they? Some bloke with a posh car sticks needles in your gums, leaving you talking like George Best on his stag-do, before tapping away at your teeth with a tiny hook counting the problems that he'll fleece you for in the future, before drilling bits of your tooth off and packing it with something that tastes like tinfoil.

Well, maybe all this is a thing of the past as some mad fuckers have invented a tooth regeneration gel. Basically, throw your tooth-brush in the bin now!

This gel could completely eradicate fillings. If you pop this stuff into a cavity, your tooth with regenerate over the course of a month or so like some weird science-fiction ghoul.

Of course, this has been tested extensively on animals first... mostly mice as it happens (we don't know if it was that one with the massive human ear on its back... Cotton Bud or whatever it was called) and tests have shown the gel working on them, presumably after making them eat three stone of Toblerone first.

It'll be a while before plebs like us get to see it, but it is all very encouraging for lazy, dirty fuckers like you lot.

    Sign me up, about time they invented something to deal with fillings, it seems so low tech to just drill a hole in your tooth and fill it full of metal or plastic. I'd prefer though some sort of laquer that lasts say a year or so, that protects your teeth from acid etc. I'd happily pay a lot for that if it meant no more fillings.
