Do Baby Teeth Have Stem Cells?
Yes - baby teeth are an excellent source of stem cells and provide a convenient, non-invasive opportunity to recover stem cells when the cells are both young and plentiful.
Stem cells age along with the individual. Over time, both their number and regenerative capabilities diminish so baby teeth present an excellent opportunity to bank young stem cells.
Baby Teeth Eligibility Criteria
Exfoliating baby teeth that fall into the ‘Harvest Zone’ are ideal candidates for stem cell recovery.
Baby teeth extracted for orthodontic indications are also candidates for stem cell recovery - including the molars that are outside the harvest zone.
