Baby teeth, also called ‘milk’ or ‘deciduous’ teeth, appear from the age of about six months and fall out when the child is aged between six and eleven years old. Now, with the help of Bioeden Tooth Cell Bank, the cells from these teeth can be saved for future medical use thus acting as “biological insurance” for their families.

Cells make up all the body’s tissue and organs such as heart, liver, brain, and skin.

Stem cells can divide and change into particular types of cells which under controlled conditions can grow into tissue, organs, and bones, and developed stem cells can work on repairing the immune system. In fact stem cells can create replacement cells for those that are lost or damaged by injury or disease.

Baby tooth cells generally contain stem cells which multiply rapidly and can differentiate into several other cell types.

Tooth Cell banking is a proactive decision parents all over the world are now making. With years of potential health benefits in return for simply saving your children’s teeth, it’s easy to see why.

Storing tooth cells with BioEDEN has a number of significant advantages. First and foremost, it is a perfectly natural process. There are twelve suitable teeth shed over a period of approximately five years, so there are many opportunities for parents to plan ahead and arrange BioEDEN storage for their children’s tooth cells – unlike with umbilical blood stem cell collection, it is not a “one-off” chance. Obviously the process itself is non-invasive and does not interfere with any other events in a child’s life.

We understand that issues surrounding the health of your child and family are very emotive. For this reason, we have made the tooth cell banking process as simple as possible and strive to keep our customers informed, comfortable and satisfied at all times.
