Stem Cell Treatment
Stem Cells are widely thought to be the cornerstone of medicine in the very near future. Whilst stem cells from teeth are not used routinely in medical treatments today, experts believe that one day they could be used to treat many different diseases and injuries. A small selection of research using stem cells from teeth and their potential to treat a variety of disorders is listed here to give you a deeper understanding of the significance of stem cells from teeth.
A comprehensive review of research relating specifically to stem cells from teeth can be downloaded below.
Stem Cell Research
The continuous advancement in stem cell therapy around the world means scientists are well down the path to curing diseases and healing medical conditions that would otherwise remain untreatable.
For stem cell therapy to work however, it is imperative that the source of the stem cells is compatible with the recipient and to avoid the rejection of transplanted tissues, it is always best to use the patient’s own stem cells for these treatments.
The cells found in teeth hold the potential to treat conditions such as:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Neuronal degenerative disorders (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease)
- Cardiovascular disease
- Paralysis due to spinal cord injury
- Liver disease
- Heart attack
- Joint bone repair
As medical research continues to make amazing breakthroughs, storing teeth stem cells from your child is an excellent way to prepare for the healthcare needs they may encounter in their adult life.
