Since stem cells were discovered in teeth, hundreds of medical
research studies at universities and research institutions began
investigating how these easily-accessible stem cells can be used
to develop new medical treatments for you and your family in
the event of disease or injury.
The global medical community's interest in stem cells is not
new. However, the knowledge of the fact that there are stem cells
conveniently located in teeth, is new. Since the 1970s,
doctors have been using stem cells from bone marrow to treat
leukemia and other serious blood diseases. The process
of extracting stem cells from bone marrow requires either an
invasive surgery or the lengthy process of filtering blood after
the administration of powerful drugs. Both methods of extracting
stem cells require the patient to be in healthy condition in
order to ensure recovery from the procedure. Often times,
a donor provides the stem cells, but the patient receiving the
transplant is still required to take powerful anti-rejection
drugs that suppress the body's immune system and leave the body
defenseless and vulnerable.
Today, with over 30 years of accumulated experience with bone
marrow stem cells, medical researchers are now focused on the
power of much more accessible and less invasive methods of securing
a patient's stem cells, particularly those found in teeth, that
are typically discarded following a planned extraction.
By banking your family's stem cells from teeth:
- You are protecting their future health.
- You are all but eliminating the potential risk of cell rejection
and other complications: Their matched stem cells are available
- You are acting upon an opportunity that is safe, convenient
The healthier you are and the earlier you collect and preserve
your stem cells, the better. Younger stem cells grow faster and
for longer periods of time. They have less potential for mutations.
These stem cells will be more effective when needed for future
