We can rebuild him... (or at least his mouth)

From the front page story in today's Globe and Mail:
It was a gut-wrenching moment during the Edmonton Oilers' run for the Stanley Cup: Ryan Smyth getting hit by a puck and losing some of his bottom teeth, which his teammates recovered from the bloody ice.

Mr. Smyth's kind of problem may soon have a made-in-Alberta solution.

Three researchers at the University of Alberta have become the first to file a patent for technology that can regrow human teeth for snaggle-toothed people such as Mr. Smyth.
