Have you always wondered why parents are being asked to keep their babies’ baby teeth? It’s not about keeping it as a memory. Do you know that it could help save lives?
A recent study shown that baby teeth are a rich source of stem cells that can be grown into many different kinds of cells. When the child gets older, they might need it for replacing tissues for any kind of reason. The stem cells from the baby teeth can help grow the needed tissue and also save lives!
The important part is that you have to keep it fresh, but how? You can use Store-A-Tooth, which puts the teeth in a liquid nitrogen cryopreservation vault to help make it fresh for a long time.
More research is happening to decide other ways that baby teeth can save lives.
