What is the tooth stem cell collection process?

Don’t wait until your child starts to lose their teeth before you make your decision. Enroll now and follow our simple 3 step process to ensure you’re immediately prepared to safely return the teeth to our nearest laboratory.

Always ensure that your child brushes their teeth regularly, (at least twice a day) and uses a mouthwash.

Step 1 – Tooth Collection

Enroll with us, and we will send you a tooth collection kit. The tooth collection kit includes easy to follow instructions. Please read these prior to the tooth falling out or being extracted. The time immediately after the tooth has fallen out or has been extracted is critical.

Carefully following the instructions, the tooth must be placed and packaged in the collection box provided. You then contact us, and we arrange for the kit to be shipped and received at the BioEden laboratory within 48 hours to maximise chances of a successful isolation of the valuable tooth stem cells.

Within 7 days of the tooth falling out, please arrange a blood sample taken from your child and returned to us in the provided blood collection packaging.

Step 2 – Tooth Cell Isolation

When the tooth is received at the laboratory, our scientists work swiftly to collect the cellular material. Once the tooth cells are isolated, we confirm the health and viability of the tooth stem cells.

Step 3 – Tooth Stem Cell Storage

Once we have a guaranteed number of viable, uncontaminated tooth stem cells, suitable for healthy growth and future treatment, they are cryogenically stored for your family’s future. Every tooth cell batch is divided into two separate samples, then cryopreserved and stored in separate locations for additional insurance.

We are the only tooth cell bank in the US to store your cells in two different facilities for complete peace of mind. Our patented process allows us to keep these valuable dental stem cells stored well into the adult life of the donor. This secures the potential for the treatment of illness and disease at a time when they are needed most.

We understand your continued interest in your investment, so we continually update all our customers on the latest advances in the field of stem cell research and application. We also regularly check all our processes to ensure we constantly maintain standards and operate within stringent regulatory guidelines.
