I wonder if it works for all ages, if this would make a dent in the denture industry and in dentistry overall. Why get a root canal if you can just get new choppers?

They’re also trying to see if they can make people taller. A scene from Gattaca comes to mind as to how that would work. Doesn’t sound pleasant, but then again I haven’t had to deal with being short.
