A research article recently published by Dr. Arnold Caplan Ph.D, and Dr. Irina Kerkis Ph.D examines the proliferative capabilities and plasticity of stem cells found in both baby teeth (DTSC) and adult wisdom teeth( DPSC).

By examining the origin and development of both types of teeth, the researchers found that both baby and wisdom teeth are highly proliferative and plastic, making them conducive to cryo-preservation and future harvesting. The article notes that stem cells derived from baby teeth have particular proliferative capacity because of the high concentration of stem cells in young teeth.
