Future Health BIOBANK is...
The dental pulp within a tooth contains your own unique stem cells. Your dental pulp stem cells are a perfect match for you and also carry a significant probability of a match for other family members. Collecting and preserving a sample of dental pulp stem cells is, therefore, a perfect opportunity to capture these vital cells so that they can be held as a unique biological insurance which one day might help to save your life should you ever contract a serious illness or medical condition.
Dental pulp stem cells can be harvested in a non-invasive manner, unlike bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell collection.
Stem cells are the building blocks of the blood and immune system and have the potential of being used to replace damaged or diseased cells anywhere in the body.
Stem cells taken from sources such as umbilical cord blood (Haematopoietic stem cells) have the potential to be used to treat disorders such as Leukaemia, anaemia, autoimmune disease and even some forms of cancers. Stem cells taken from teeth (Mesenchymal stem cells) could play an important part in repair and regenerative treatments for diseases such as:
At the heart of your children's’ teeth is a reservoir of dental pulp and inside this is a supply of precious stem cells. These are known as Mesenchymal stem cells. These stem cells have the ability to change themselves into lots of different kinds of cells that may be able to repair joints, muscles, bone, nerves, even a damaged heart.
Future Health Biobank has developed the technology, expertise and care, to keep your children's’ dental stem cells safe, healthy, and ready should they ever be needed.
