Your child is in the magic age at which they begin the transition to adulthood. The first step is the replacement of teeth with those who will have until the end of life. But wait, before you throw away those little pearly white teeth, they can help save a life!
Each tooth is made up of a number of microscopic cells. In 2003, dr. Songtao Shi of the University of Pennsylvania found that the teeth contain very useful cells called “step cells.” These stem cells are so powerful because they can get into any type of cell in the body.
Stem cell therapy is used more than 30 years to help treat a variety of conditions such as leukemia and lymphoma.
The teeth contain incredible stem cells. When you save your child’s teeth, you lock away your stem cells, meaning that they are compatible with their body, as need if some of the disease develops later in life.
