The Butantan developed novel treatment for regeneration of human jaw by means of stem cells. The method has no risk of rejection and also assists in the inflammatory process.

The technique was used in cases of bone defects, using genetic material extracted from the dental pulp of human milk tooth. The cells are collected from a child or grandchild of the patient, between six and 12 years, during which children exchange their milk teeth.

Another differential treatment is the rapid reconstruction of the affected site. After collection and deployment of stem cells, a process that takes about two hours, the jaws regenerate in about six months.

After four months we have analyzed the possibility of inserting implants in the affected area. The entire procedure takes about six months, allowing a recovery in less time than the other treatments, details Favero Camila de Oliveira, a dentist and researcher at the Laboratory of Genetics, Instituto Butantan.

The next steps of the study are to analyze the possibility of obtaining results in less time and with the same effectiveness. With the advancement of this process, the researchers plan to deploy the technique in other parts of the body with bone defects.

The procedure was approved by the National Research Ethics (Conep) and with financial support of the National Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), is in the testing phase. The early stages showed very positive results and we are selecting other volunteers for the remaining stages of the research, the researcher says.
