Dr. Songtao Shi, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research is conducting a study that found that baby teeth contain stem cells valuable 1-2 dozen, which can be used to treat different diseases further in life.
Experts have been studying the effects of stem cells in the heart, brain, pancreas and other organs in repairing damage caused by the disease. Dr. Shi’s team found that permanent teeth contain one type of stem cell, while the teeth (for children 7 years and 8) completely contain different stem cells.
The teeth can save life, if he could not afford to store cord blood for your baby’s stem cells or have not thought about this time !!!
How does it work?
Stem cells are found in dental pulp in the tooth, which is then regenerated in neurons, bone and cartilage (or heart cells). This treatment may be effective for type I diabetes, because the stem cells from teeth can become pancreatic cells that produce insulin.
In order to preserve the stem cells that can be useful, they must be alive. Within 48 hours of being frozen, the dental pulp should have adequate blood SUPPLY- less than this and the cell dies.
The Director of Regenerative Dental Laboratory, Dr. Peter Murray, says the oral tissue and teeth can regenerate stem cells baby teeth, yolks teeth, wisdom teeth, periodontal tissue or induced pluripotent cells.
There are services that can store baby teeth, which recommend extracting baby teeth by dental professionals; the tooth should not be hanging, because this way `s very possible that does not contain enough blood supply. Some companies offer storage container and home collection process, others offer packaging and shipping supplies for parents to save their own teeth.
