A New Approach to the Problem.
This new liquid solves that problem. Because it’s liquid, all that has to be done is that the material has to be injected into the void, and it will automatically fill the space, giving a regeneration scaffold wherever necessary.
But, wait, you may ask, wouldn’t the liquid then just flow out again? No, because the liquid transforms to a gel at human body temperatures. This gel allows new bone cells to grow in and among its matrix. Then, unlike conventional solid scaffolding, the gel can be reliquified, allowing it to be removed so the body can finish growing on its own.
We’re a long way from applying this technique in dental implant procedures, but so far researchers have shown that they can cause make the liquid to gel transformation at human body temperature, and that the gel can protect stem cells and growth factors currently used to stimulate bone growth in grafting procedures.
