It is a special stage in your child’s development when their milk teeth start to wobble and the tooth fairy pays a visit. As well as placing a coin under their pillow, wouldn’t it make sense to offer your child a gift of lasting value?
Tooth stem cells are special cells that live in the pulp tissue inside our teeth.
These stem cells are formed during the sixth week of a baby’s development in the womb. They contain unique mesenchymal stem cells that have the potential to be used in a wide variety of medical treatments, such as tissue and bone regeneration.
When your child’s milk teeth come out – usually between the ages of 6 and 12 – they can be sent to us and we can preserve and store the stem cells from one or more of them in case your child or other family members need them to treat future health conditions.
Future Health Biobank has developed the technology, expertise and care, to keep your childrens’ dental stem cells safe, healthy, and ready in case they are ever needed.
