Stem cells are the building blocks of life, they create a direct link between your child’s good health at the time they are born and their good health in the future. Should your child face any number of a vast range of health issues in later life, stem cells may be the key to repairing and restoring their health. Dental Pulp Banking is the process of storing these cells.
The dental pulp within milk teeth contain your child’s own unique cells, meaning they are a perfect match and carry a significant probability of a match for other members of the family too. They can be held as a type of biological insurance, which one day might help to save their life should they ever contract a serious illness or medical condition.
Mesenchymal stem cells that may be present within dental pulp, could play an important part in repair and regeneration treatments for diseases such as: Arthritis, Muscular dystrophy, Neurogenerative diseases & Myocardial infarctions.

The processes used by Future Health to store dental pulp have been shown to result in the banking of live cells. Future Health is currently undertaking further validation studies to prove that the dental pulp samples stored do contain MSCs which retain their ability to differentiate into different tissue types including bone, cartilage and fat after the samples have been frozen. Future Health is not able to guarantee that dental pulp stored contains stem cells and the number and quality of these cells.
