What cells are found in teeth?

About tooth cells

Stem cell therapy, without the fear of rejection, offers one of the most promising paths to curing medical conditions, injures and diseases and safeguarding the health of future generations. An ongoing supply of healthy cells is therefore essential.

In humans, stem cells can be found in many different parts of the body, typically bone marrow, blood and umbilical cord blood. Now baby teeth have been proven to provide an abundant source of adult stem cells with the potential to treat and cure a vast number of illnesses and diseases.

The pulp of children’s baby teeth generally contains a range of valuable cells including:

Mesenchymal stem cells
. Cells with the ability to develop into a wide range tissues

Chondrocytes
. Cells with the ability to generate cartilage and therefore ideal for arthritis or joint injuries

Adipocytes. 
Cells with the ability to repair damaged cardiac tissue for example after a heart attack. They are also ideal for reconstructive surgery of the face.

The BioEden process collects all the cells potentially contained within the pulp area of the tooth at the time of processing.
The isolation of stem cells from teeth is a patent protected process owned by BioEDEN.
