DID YOU KNOW?????? Stem cells from baby teeth....

It is important to plan your child's future ...

STEM CELLS from baby teeth and wisdom teeth:Recently it was discovered by researchers that the Baby or deciduous teeth that falls out naturally ,when a child is between 6 and 11 years of age,contains rich blood supply in the nerve tissues inside the tooth.

DID YOU KNOW???Baby tooth contains stem cells that have the ability to develop into many different types of cells such as skin ,nerves,muscles,fat,cartilage and tendon.they can potentially be used to replace diseased and damaged tissues in the body without rejection.
Stem cells obtained are the child's own tissue, so they can be used later without any fear of tissue rejection or transmission of infection from another donor.

TOP reasons why child's tooth stem cells should be stored today 

  1. These stem cells could one day save your child's life.
  2. Storing stem cells today means they are available tomorrow and anytime throughout your child's life.No searching.No hoping for a stem cell match.
  3. Your child's own stem cells are their only perfect stem cell match.Using their own cells means no rejection and no chance of another's disease or genetic disorder.after all they are natural part of you own teeth.
  4. Obtaining stem cells from the teeth is the only way to obtain stem cells without the need for expensive or painful medical intervention.
The stem cells found in teeth hold the potential to treat conditions such as:
  • Type 1 diabetes ,Juvenile diabetes
  • Neuronal degenerative disorders(Alzheimer's,Parkinson's and Huntington's disease)
  • Used to grow replacement skin,cornea, retina,trachea.
  • Heart repair after heart attack
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Certain forms of cancer
  • liver disease,kidney.
  • Stroke
  • Joint bone repair
  • Plastic surgery
  • Teeth,dental pulp
Advantage of stem cells derived from teeth over umbilical cord??
Storing tooth stem cells is very similar  to storing umbilical cord stem cells,the hematopoietic stem cells derived from umbilical cord that can only develop in the blood and immune related cells,Stem cell derived from teeth have a unlimited potential due to their pluripotency (ability to differentiate in the several cell types)

Which is the right age to collect stem cell from milk/baby teeth ?
5 years onwards ,the right time to recover baby tooth with stem cells is before the teeth becomes very loose,as the cells of dental pulp will remain more viable if they continue to have a blood supply.

Procedure for preserving your child's tooth stem cells:

Step 1: Enrolement : After paying the necessary fees,the customer signs a contract authorizing to maintain and preserve the dental pulp and ensure its timely retrieval whenever required.

Step 2:Tooth collection:Dentist will have the dental sampling kit,containing the necessary components,which will ensure the tooth is stored safely,at a particular temperature,until it reaches the lab.
  • On the day of extraction,the dentist will extract the teeth,the extracted tooth will be placed in the dental sampling kit with your details on it.
  • Blood sample will be collected along with your teeth
  • The dental sampling kit is then packed carefully 
Step 3:Isolation:Stem cells will be isolated from the extracted teeth.Stem cells will be tested for sterility and quality.

Step 4:Cryopreservation:Stem cells are frozen at a temperature of -238 F in liquid nitrogen and stored with appropriate labeling of the customers relevant details ,using cryopreservation technology  to maintain their viability,on retrieval in future.

Step 5: Receipt of sample certificate and future retrieval of dental stem cells:After the stem cell is preserved,the certificate of banking is sent to the customer,which he/she must keep it safely for further records.
