Dental pulp stem cells are found in the soft, connective tissues in the center of each tooth. Extensive ongoing research has shown strong potential for these tissues to contain mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs); a type of stem cell that can turn into and replicate a variety of other cells within the human body.
These valuable dental pulp stem cells can be extracted from milk teeth and healthy adult wisdom teeth. Both have the same exciting potential for regenerating tissue and can be processed and stored at a specialist biobank – for use in future treatments. Of course, dental pulp stem cells are a 100% DNA match to the donor, giving them a higher chance of success in treatment.
