Their theory is if you can find a way of making aspirin be exposed directly onto the bit inside the cavity, by putting the drug into a gel or temporary filling that you could apply directly to where you needed the healing, then maybe you can help heal and improve tooth repair. However, aspirin has been around for Donkeys years.  it's incredibly cheap which means it's very hard to get someone interested to fund these kinds of trials, because if you can't get the money in because people cant see themselves making a profit because let's be honest, Aspirin costs a tiny amount of money, then there's no incentive for pharmaceutical companies to trial these drugs. James Gallagher.
