It was just back in December of 2010 that Cord Blood purchased a Mexican Stem Cell Storage company and now a company in Argentina which is half owned by the company is beginning to store dental stem cells.
Back in October I wrote about rats that are getting their teeth reimplanted with stem cells. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have successfully used stem cells to reattach molars to tooth sockets within lab rats’ mouths
Rats Are Getting Teeth Re-Implanted With Stem Cells and Same Technology Can Be Used for Replacement Teeth
This is the ticket I can’t wait for as one who has had a lot of dental work with being able to regrow dental implants with stem cells right in your own mouth. To do this the dentals uses a tooth-shaped scaffold made of microchannelled natural materials and it also regrows periodontal ligaments in the bone. I would only hope based on my genes that it didn’t grow a tooth with any cavities.
Now what is also interesting here is the launch of “stem cell” cosmetics too. Recently I posted about “spray on” stem cell use that is about ready for clinical trials, so I guess to assume, the cosmetic end of the business is ready to advance as well. BD
