Stem Cell Basics


What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are different than most of the cells in the body – while most cells eventually age and die, stem cells have the ability to perpetually self-renew. In addition, stem cells are able to form different cell types; most cells are what they are however, a stem cell might be able to form skin, muscle, bone, and more – they have the potential to make many different types of cells.

One of the adult stem cells are Mesenchymal stem cells which form connective tissues such as bone, tendons, muscles, fat, and nerves as well as liver and pancreatic cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are typically found in bone marrow or the dental pulp in teeth.

In 2000, dental stem cells have been discovered and can be found from child's exfoliating deciduous teeth, extracted wisdom teeth or any teeth pulled for orthodontia. Dental stem cells can be easily collected and cryopreserved for future dental and medical applications.
