Stem Cells

Dental pulp is the soft living tissue inside a tooth. This dental pulp contains stem cells, known as, you guessed it, Dental Pulp Stem Cells. And the best Dental Pulp Stem Cells are in baby teeth or milk teeth (especially the teeth in the front) The stem cells from the milk teeth are 'mesenchymal' type of cells i.e. cells that have the ability to generate variety of cell types like chondrocytes, osteoblasts and adipocytes.

Chondrocytes are cells that have the ability to generate cartilage - which would have an important role in the treatment of arthritis and joint injuries. Osteoblasts are cells that have the ability to generate bone. Adipocytes are cells that have the ability to repair damaged cardiac tissue following a heart attack. Thus the dental stem cells can generate hard structures of the body such as bone, new dental tissue, cartilage and muscle.

New researches also suggest that they may be able to generate nerves. This is being studied further for use in dentistry and medicine. With these properties of dental stem cells, just imagine the sheer confidence with which your child can face a whole host of life-threatening situations later in life... because they already have the means to correct and regenerate so many parts of their own bodies! They'll thank you for all their life.
