We all have gone through the process of losing a baby tooth, but not many people are aware that this baby tooth has so much beneficial cells that can save someone’s life. Therefore, do not throw it away!
Not many people can afford or are willing to stem cells in a bank, but don’t worry because there is other way you may do so and we are going to present it to you in this article.
Dr. Songrao Shi in his research found that baby tooth contains one or two dozen stem cells. These cells can be used to cure many diseases. Also lots of other scientists have researched the effect of these cells and the way they can be used.
The results of the research showed that these cells can be used in the heart, pancreas, brain or many other important and vital organs in the body. Also they found that only one type of stem cells are actually living in adult teeth.
Also they discovered that stem cells found in teeth of children aged 6-8 are different than the one found in adult teeth. Here is how this process actually works.
Stem cells are found inside the dental pulp which is recreated into neurons, cartilage and bone cells. The process that undergoes is actually extremely important and effective in treating Type 1 diabetes and due to the dental pulp stem cells that are found in the pancreatic-type cells is used to made and produce insulin.
Please take into account that in order to preserve stem cells it is a very delicate process which requires keeping the cells alive. Specialists recommend that the teeth needs to be adequately supplied with blood for at least 48 hours before they can be frozen. If the cells are staying any less time it will kill them and they will be of no use.
Dr. Peter Murray claims that stem cells can create teeth and tissue in the mouth and they can be found in third molars, tooth buds, baby teeth, periodontal tissues and induced pluripotent cells.
You may find services that will store your baby tooth for a certain fee, but they recommend that professional dentist has to remove the teeth. It is important that the teeth is not dangling because this way the tooth will not have enough of blood supply needed to feed the cells.
