"My back teeth are floating" has an entirely new meaning to me now.

"It is probably one of the worst sources, there are very few cells in the first place and the efficiency of turning them into stem cells is very low."
I think he missed the point: If you can succeed using what is probably the worst source of genetic information, you have a better chance of success anywhere else.

Had a think about this one. I seem to remember making urea-formaldehyde in a chemistry lesson at school.
Each of us in the class had to provide our own urine sample for use in the experiment. Add to formaldehyde with something I can't remember, and hey presto you have the basic building block chemical for melamine, Formica, and a load of other hard wearing resins in every day use.
So making teeth from urine could be possible, but I don't know about the growing them bit.

@ Pinkminx: I imagine this or something very similar will be standard practice 100 years from now.

"Just pee in this cup, Mr. Smith, and leave the sample at the front desk. We'll see you in three months when we put your new tooth in!"

It would be awesome, wouldn't it?

As someone who works in the lovely field of dentistry, I am both intrigued and grossed out at the same time..If this could actually work, it would be so ungodly expensive..

HER: "Kiss me".
HIM: "Your breath stinks of piss, I'm off".

HER: "Kiss me."
HIM: "Sure thing! Wait a minute, didn't you get those ..."
HER: "Kiss me now, you fool!"
HIM: "Well, you see, I ..."
HER: "NOW, damn you!"
HIM: "Be right back, gotta feed the meter."
