I have now done further research that has indicated the restoration of dentin that appears to ocurring is merely a thin layer used to protect the root of the tooth. This is weak apparently.
I’m very upset by this.
I read elsewhere that someone restored this layer and the dentist then applied a sealant over it to protect it. I am wondering if this is an avenue I can take. But if this sealant will prevent stem cell treatment or the potential of laser therapy in the future then I am not interested. I will just continue to carry out this routine until these resources are available to me.

The tooth is nature’s ‘safe’ for your family’s unique stem cells
While stem cells can be found in most tissues of the body, they are usually buried deep, are few in number and are similar in appearance to surrounding cells. With the discovery of stem cells in teeth, an accessible and available source of stem cells has been identified.
The tooth is nature’s “safe” for these valuable stem cells, and there is an abundance of these cells in baby teeth, wisdom teeth and permanent teeth – Tooth Eligibility Criteria. The stem cells contained within teeth are capable of replicating themselves and can be readily recovered at the time of a planned dental procedure.
Living stem cells found within extracted teeth were routinely discarded every day, but now, with the knowledge from recent medical research, StemSave gives you the opportunity to save these cells for future use in developing medical treatments for your family.
Aside from being the most convenient stem cells to access, dental stem cells have significant medical benefits in the development of new medical therapies. Using one’s own stem cells for medical treatment means a much lower risk of rejection by the body and decreases the need for powerful drugs that weaken the immune system, both of which are negative but typical realities that come into play when tissues or cells from a donor are used to treat patients.
Further, the stem cells from teeth have been observed in research studies to be among the most powerful stem cells in the human body. Stem cells from teeth replicate at a faster rate and for a longer period of time than do stem cells harvested from other tissues of the body.
Stem cells in the human body age over time and their regenerative abilities slow down later in life. The earlier in life that your family’s stem cells are secured, the more valuable they will be when they are needed most.
Fillings will prevent repair. This is mechanical intervention which takes away healthy tooth. Please do not do undertake this method. Fillings do not heal cavities. Fillings are temporarily replacements. They sit inside the tooth and do not bind to the dentine. That is why bacteria continues to infest (although bacterial causation of cavities is skeptical) and you end up having to get root canals! Dentists are becoming the richest people in the world because of expensive techniques they use which must be replaced. Dentistry is a field which needs to be more thoroughly researched.
