Hope on the horizon for the orally fearful

That is, if a trip to a dentist fills you with fear of drills and other painful intervention, you may thrill to the news that a new passive treatment induces tooth cells to regrow damaged tooth surface, so that neither drilling nor filling are required. Still a couple years of clinical testing to go, but could be pretty neat (and greatly lower the stress levels of jobs in dentistry as well)...
