New research suggests we are far from having a perfect method to decellularize tooth tissue A new research article published in Future Science OA has attempted to answer the challenge of discovering the best process for creating a natural scaffold for tooth tissue engineering. Luciana Aparecida de Sousa Iwamoto et al. from UNIFESP- Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo- Escola Paulista de Medicina (Brazil) evaluated 4 different methods in 50 premolar teeth, evaluating them via SEM and x-ray, and for weight and colour.
