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. The results imply PBS, EDTA, hydrogen peroxide and Ryozime® enzymatic detergent to be the best method available, but it is by no means perfect.
