With age, there is a decline in your cells’ efficacy, efficiency and population. Collecting your cells TODAY, ensures storage of the “youngest” and “healthiest” cells.
Stem cell therapy is emerging as a revolutionary new way to treat disease and injury, by introducing stem cells into 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. Stem cells from the dental pulp in baby, wisdom and extracted teeth, have the ability to develop into body tissue.
Stem cells from teeth (mesenchymal stem cells) are different from those found in cord blood or bone marrow (hematopoietic stem cells). Cord blood cells can be used to treat blood disorders such as leukemia, but stem cells from teeth are different. Stem cells from teeth can be used to grow a range of tissues including bone, nerve, fat, muscle and cartilage and may one day be used to grow entire organs. It is widely believed that stem cells will be used to treat a wide variety of diseases and injuries within the next decade.
Emerging stem cell therapies is dependent on the presence of a rich and abundant source of stem cells. Cord blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells, but it does not contain significant quantities of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs are multipotent cells and have been shown to differentiate into bone cells (osteoblasts), fat cells (adipocytes), liver cells (hepatocytes) and cartilage cells (chondrocytes) as well as muscle cells (myocytes) and nerve cells (neurons). This means they have enormous potential for future therapeutic use.
The youngest stem cells are the best ones, right? Your own stem cells are the best ones.
You now have an unprecedented and timely opportunity to secure and store your family’s own unique stem cells to treat future disease or injury. The restorative properties of stem cells are unique because they drive the natural healing process throughout your life. Today, medical researchers are learning how to control stem cells and direct their growth into specialized cells, including: blood, skin, bone, cartilage, teeth, muscle and nerves. As a result, amazing new medical treatments are being developed to treat a range of diseases contemporary medicine currently deems difficult or impossible to treat.
