Stem cell therapy
from Financial Chronicle
Dental stem cells are being studied as a way to help treat a number of medical diseases and conditions. Adult stem cells from teeth have been used to successfully grow jawbone and treat periodontal disease in people. Other potential diseases which can be treated via adult stem cells include diabetes, spinal cord injury, motor-neuron, stroke, heart attacks, liver disease, cornea repair, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's. Dental pulp stem cell banking can be done from the milk teeth of children in the age group of 5-12 years. Teens that are undergoing orthodontic procedures such as getting braces have the opportunity to bank their premolars that are often extracted during this procedure. Adults have the opportunity to bank their dental pulp stem cells via wisdom teeth.
