Why Store Stem Cells from Teeth?
Baby teeth, also called milk or a deciduous teeth, fall out naturally when a child is typically between 6 and 11 years of age. They contain stem cells that have the ability to develop into many different types of tissue, (skin, nerve, muscle, fat, cartilage and tendon) and 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.
There are no medical interventions required and no religious or ethical objections to overcome. The world’s first specialist tooth cell banking company, BioEDEN offers a simple, yet highly efficient method of collecting, isolating and storing these powerful baby tooth cells should they ever be needed in the future. Tooth cell banking is a proactive decision being made by parents all over the world who recognize years of potential health benefits for their child in return for simply saving their baby teeth.
You can not store these teeth yourself at home. BioEDEN has a patented process for the extraction of stem cells from teeth. This highly developed and validated process is specific for the isolation, assessment and storage of the cells themselves and is the product of several years of development work. If we find that there are insufficient cells in a tooth or that the cells do not grow properly, we will repeat the process free of charge on the next tooth that is shed.
