Advances in dental pulp stem cell [DPSC] research and treatment are making it more pertinent than ever to participate in stem cell banking. Dentistry Today writes, “Most of the body’s stem cells are difficult to extract, found in fewer numbers, buried deep in tissues adjacent to similar-looking surrounding cells. But stem cells found in teeth are numerous and readily extracted. What’s more, dental stem cells appear to be among the fastest replicating stem cells discovered to date.”
Additionally, dental stem cells are on the cusp of revolutionizing conventional treatments such as fillings, root canals and even implants. Multiple clinical and pre-clinical studies utilizing dental stem cells to repair and regenerate teeth are currently underway; ready to bring about a new standard of care, much of which could be available to patients in the not-too-distant future. Research from Harvard University, University of Texas and University of Nottingham, among others, is set to further improve stem cell treatments by providing ideal growth scaffolds that will help the cells target their effect and proliferate. The utilization of DPSCs to treat a broad spectrum of disease, trauma and injury is global in scope with research advancing in Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, China, Australia and India. DPSCs are being employed in clinical trials to treat stroke victims and to grow bone as well as in studies to unlock the mysteries of autism.
To learn more about stem cells, and how families can bank their own valuable stem cells by recovering the very powerful dental pulp stem cells during routine dental procedures; such as wisdom teeth extractions or the during the loss of baby teeth, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
