Periodontist Professor Saso Ivanovski, from Griffith University’s Menzies Institute, has pioneered the work which plans to use a “bioprinter” to grow missing bone and tissue from a patient’s own cells.

Future dentists will look back on our practice of cutting away tooth and bone to replace it with metal or ceramic as barbaric. Or what might be even worse cutting healthy tissue from one part of a body to put it someplace else. Much as we view plaster of Paris impressions or carved ivory dentures today.

Despite advances in materials and technique, including digital manufacture the fact is our basic approach to dental restoration is the same as it was for G.V. Black in 1896. That is cut away the tooth stuff it with a filling or cast a piece to replace the missing bits.

The future is coming and it will be amazing!
