They used biodegradable collagen sponges to deliver the treatment – applying low doses of the drug to the tooth.
After a short while the sponge degraded – being replaced by the newly created dentine. This lead to a complete and natural repair of the tooth.

And the scientists say this could in turn reduce the need for teeth extractions by cutting the risk of bugs.
