In a not very further future much pathology could be treated from the use of stem cells kept frozen. This is in reality, is not a novelty; the truly novelty lies in the fact that those cells could be from dental origin. Teeth, normally end up in the garbage, are indeed a very rich source of stem cells that could be frozen and preserve for its posterior use.
Other sources of obtaining stem cells are already known, such as the case of the umbilical cord stem cells, or the ones that are obtained from a liposuction or from a lumbar puncture. However, the dental pulp stem cells besides being non- invasive have the advantage of allowing a vast capacity of multiply and differentiating in other tissues. Moreover, they could be modified in such way that can grow in a conserved manner of stem cells number undifferentiated.
An easy procedure
The dental center should be authorized by Criodental Biopharma, affiliated in Spain from the Institut Clinident Biopharma, with head office in Switzerland, who imposes some demanding criteria. After a delicate exam, the dental pieces are proceeded to be chosen so could be extracted. Those pieces could be primary teeth or permanent teeth that are going to be extracted because of facultative prescription. In any case, should be healthy teeth.
Once the appropriate teeth have been extracted, Sannas Dentofacial keeps it in a special container provided by Criodental Biopharma and its sending is proceeded. In less than 24 hours is in its destination.
Dental pulp stem cells are capable of generating bony, muscular, neuronal or cardiac cells. Between the pathologies in which stem cells could offer potential are found: bony regeneration, cornea regeneration, myocardia stroke, spinal medullary lesions regeneration, salivary glands regeneration, dental regeneration and dental tissues regeneration, muscular dystrophy or diabetes.
