Question
Has research been done or is it possible to have a cadaver set of teeth installed. Or is this not possible at this time.

Answer
Ervin -  Cadaver teeth are not used.  Once those teeth are cleaned and chemicals applied to prevent a transfer of bacteria, the teeth would be fragile.  Another reason they would not be good; is that if they were used previously, they would be run down and it would be difficult to create a normal bite.
