|"This procedure sounds great but I doubt that the average person will ever have access to this treatment. I can imagine that the cost will be prohibitive and only wealthy people will make use of this technology. The cost of tooth implants is about £2000 per tooth. Not many people can afford that level of cost so I wonder if growing one's own teeth will be cheaper than the tooth implants?"
