Tooth Stem Cell

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more stem cells.Under controlled conditions, they can grow into organs, bones and tissue, or developed stem cells, and repair the immune system. Stem cells can create replacement cells for those that are lost or damaged by injury or disease.

Tooth stem cells are stem cells found in the ‘baby’ (deciduous) teeth of children and wisdom teeth or third molar teeth of adult. Studies show that baby teeth and wisdom teeth stem cells have the ability to develop into more types of body tissue than other types of stem cells. This difference opens a wider array of therapeutic applications. 

Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary new way to treat disease and injury, with wide-ranging medical benefits. Stem cells are introduced in to an area where the normal cells have lost their function due to disease or damage. The stem cells then replace or repair the damaged cells and restore normal function. If ever your child's tooth or wisdom tooth cells are needed in the future, whether to treat a disease or repair an injury, they will be available ready for use. The Stem Cell technology has created waves in the medical fraternity and treatments related to it are widely available in top hospitals in India.

Types of Tooth Stem Cells
Adipocytes :
Adipocytes are successfully used to repair muscle damage caused by severe heart attack. They can also be used to treat cardiovascular disease, spine and orthopedic conditions, congestive heart failure, Crohn’s disease, and in plastic surgeries.

Chondrocytes and Osteoblasts :
Chondrocytes and Osteoblasts are used to grow bone and cartilage suitable for transplant. They have also been used to grow intact teeth in animals.

Mesenchymal :
Mesenchymal stem cells repair spinal cord injury and restore feeling and movement in paralyzed human patients. Since they can form neuronal clusters, mesenchymal stem cells also have the potential to treat neuronal degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, cerebral palsy, as well as a host of other disorders.
