Extraction of Tooth Stem Cells

Personalised regenerative medicine is widely accepted as the future of medical science. Stem cell therapy is fundamental to this approach.

Baby or deciduous teeth fall out naturally when a child is generally between 6 and 11 years of age. They contain stem cells that have the ability to develop into many different types of cells such as skin, nerve, muscle, fat, cartilage, and tendon. They can potentially be used to replace diseased and damaged tissues in the body without rejection. These teeth are by far the easiest and most natural, non-invasive source of stem cells.

 

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are special AS they can change into other types of cells, which means they have immense potential.

Stem cells are unique in the body because they can change into other types of cells, which means they have immense potential to enhance and extend life. Stem cells can replace cells that are lost or damaged by injury or disease. This means that under the right conditions they can be developed and grow to form organs, bones, cartilage and tissue as well as having the ability to repair the immune system.

Potential Benefits from Tooth Stem Cells

 

They can replace cells that are lost or damaged by injury or disease. Grown under the right conditions they can be developed to form organs, bones, cartilage and tissue. Stem cells also have the ability to repair the immune system. Stem cell therapy, without the fear of rejection, offers one of the most promising paths to curing medical conditions, injures and diseases and safeguarding the health of future generations. An ongoing supply of healthy cells is therefore essential.

Sounds impossible? It’s not, thanks to leading research, the realms of what is possible have changed.

 

About tooth stem cells

In humans, stem cells can be found in many different parts of the body, typically bone marrow, blood and umbilical cord blood. Now baby teeth have been proven to provide an abundant source of adult stem cells with the potential to treat and cure a vast number of illnesses and diseases.

It is suggested that extracted milk teeth have the best chance of obtaining the most number of stem cells by extracting dental pulp from the tooth and then isolating the tooth cells from the dental pulp. The pulp of children’s baby teeth generally contains a range of valuable adult stem cells. The process collects all the cells potentially contained within the pulp area of the tooth at the time of collection.The tooth cells are then cryogenically stored ready for use should your child ever need them. New stem cells therapies are being developed at an unprecedented pace, in fact many ideas for treatment are now becoming a reality and will be more widespread when your child has children of his or her own.
 

Your child will lose 12 milk teeth over a period of approximately five years. This length of time means there are more opportunities to obtain viable cells for storage and the process is completely non-invasive. These is also a possibility in extracting, testing and storing adult wisdom teeth generally up to the age of 25.

Artiste Studios is excited to be supporting stem cell research through patient education. Our partner is the world’s first and only specialist biobank to collect, assess and cryogenically store living cells from teeth.
