Opus Dental Specialities is proud to be associated with Stemade a centre for dental stem cell banking.
Dental stem cell banking means storing stem cells from teeth for future use. Stem cells obtained from the Tooth pulp (soft tissue inside teeth) can be differentiated to a variety of tissue cells and therefore are useful in the treatment of various neurological, cartilage, heart & diabetic ailments. Easily obtainable from falling milk teeth in children or extracted wisdom teeth in adults this provides an easy option for banking. They can be stored by cryo preservation for many years and can be ready for use when the need arises. This eliminates the need to find a suitable donor and the associated complications.
As we age, the reparative and regenerative capacity of our body declines. If we store young viable stem cells, we could use them to repair and regenerate damaged tissue at any stage.
The value of storing stem cells today will only be realized when they are used in the future to cure the incurables!

Dental stem cells are adult stem cells found in both milk teeth and wisdom teeth. Dental stem cells belong to a class of adult stem cells referred to as ‘mesenchymal stem cells’ and have been shown to be able to differentiate into bone, dental tissue, cartilage, and muscle, and there is evidence that they may be able to differentiate into neural tissue. They are being studied for applications in regenerative dentistry and medicine as well.
