Missing Teeth? A Breakthrough “Tooth Regrowth” Drug Heads to Human Trials

X-ray of all 32 human teeth

For people missing teeth from birth defects or other causes, replacement options like dentures or implants are currently the only solutions. But that could change if an experimental drug proves successful in an upcoming clinical trial led by Japanese researchers. The drug, called TRG035, is an antibody that targets a
