Cord blood & cord tissue
Tooth Stem Cell Banking
If you’ve missed the chance to store the cells from your child’s umbilical cord, there is a second chance through dental pulp cell banking.
Saving baby teeth for stem cells
Cells found in your child’s milk teeth, as well as those in healthy adult teeth, are important as these clever cells have regenerative potential and can convert themselves into many different types of cells. These cells are considered to be naïve and it is because of this it could allow them to change which could lead to repair of cells and fix joints, muscles, bone, nerves, and even a damaged heart
Milk Tooth Stem Cell Banking
Teeth hold quantities of unique dental pulp cells that can be harvested and processed for storage.
The process is simple and non-invasive:
• Request your information pack
• Return your storage agreement
• Receive your collection kit and the contact details for your phlebotomist (fully-qualified doctor specialising in blood samples)
• Follow the collection kit instructions when the tooth comes out
• Arrange courier pick-up
• Arrange for your phlebotomist to come to your house and collect a blood sample
Treatments and therapies based on blood-forming stem cells include:
• Cleft palate repair
• Sickle cell
• Severe Combined Immunodeficiency
• Knee cartilage repair
Current medical trials into autism and cerebral palsy involve the pulp found inside teeth, and offer hope for hundreds of conditions.
Store baby teeth
Tooth stem cell banking is available for babies, children, and adults who have missed the chance to bank umbilical stem cells.
Is it possible to take stem cells from baby first tooth
Speak to the experts at Stem Protect, and discuss the collection of your child’s milk teeth of stem cell banking.
Contact us about banking healthy adult teeth to protect yourself from future illnesses and conditions.
Our processes used in order to store tooth pulp have been shown to result in the banking of live cells.
We are constantly improving our validation studies in order to further prove dental pulp samples stored do contain MSCs which will retain their ability to differentiate into many different tissue types including bone, cartilage, and fat after the samples have been frozen. As currently as per the HTA guidelines we are unable to guarantee that the dental pulp stored contains stem cells and the number and quality of these cells.
How much does tooth stem cell storage cost?
For costs on both adult tooth stem cell storage and children’s tooth storage please contact us, we offer various packages to suit your individual requirements and our helpful consultants will explain everything and answer any questions over the phone.
Similar to a bone marrow transplant, a successful Stem Cell Transplant can allow the body to grow healthy cells to replace diseased tissue.
A non-invasive prenatal test uses state of the art genetic sequencing to search for potentially dangerous medical risks which may affect your child as they develop before any symptoms occur.
