Why Pay More For Less?

Most dental stem cell banking companies do not have their own onsite laboratory. Here at Tooth Bank, we prioritize quality control, which includes maintaining our own state-of-the-art stem cell processing laboratory. Here, we process the majority of all dental stem cells harvested in the U.S. By operating our own onsite laboratory, Tooth Bank is able to pass the savings along to our customers, and ensure efficient processing and quality control. As a result, our customers can feel confident entrusting their dental stem cells to us, and they save hundreds of dollars.

Did You Bank Cord Blood? Great! Here’s The Next Thing to Do

The science isn’t new. In fact, transplantable stem cells were first discovered in cord blood in 1985. But the neat thing about science is that new discoveries and better techniques are being developed continuously. That’s where Tooth Bank enters the picture. Tooth Bank represents the next gen approach to preserving a child’s stem cells for future medical treatments that could save their life. Whereas cord blood stem cells may be used in childhood, dental stem cells can be used as the child grows older and becomes an adult.

Dental stem cells are also ideal for individuals who require multiple treatments. Cord blood may be used once, but dental stem cells can be multiplied and expanded for use in many treatments. And unlike other companies that charge a fee for stem cell expansion, Tooth Bank provides this service free of charge!

Another benefit of banking both cord blood and dental stem cells is that their uses complement each other. With cord blood, it is sometimes not feasible to perform a stem cell transplant because the donor blood may contain inheritable genetic disorders. In other words, you cannot treat a genetic disorder using stem cells that also contain that genetic disorder. Dental stem cells may contain other genetic disorders, but may be used to treat the hereditary conditions that cord blood stem cells cannot treat. By banking both types, you’ll cover all your bases.

Why Preserve Both Kinds of Stem Cells?

Cord blood definitely has the potential for life-saving uses as well. It contains haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), which can be turned into any other type of cell found in human blood. These include the white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. This ability makes HSCs ideal for treating blood-related diseases, but unfortunately, they cannot be turned into non-blood cells. As a parent, you’ll undoubtedly want to cover all the bases to ensure your child’s healthy future. Where cord blood stops at blood cells, dental stem cells pick up the slack. Unlike HSCs, dental stem cells can be turned into a wide range of other cell types, including cells of the skeletal tissues, like cartilage (chondrocytes), bone (osteoblasts), and fat (adipocytes). They can even turn into cardiomyocytes, which are heart muscle cells! This makes them suitable for treating diseases that affect the heart.

Tooth Bank can preserve the mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) found in extracted baby and wisdom teeth. MSCs are an exciting discovery in regenerative medicine because they can turn into a wide range of other cells in the musculoskeletal system, with the potential to treat everything from diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease. This makes dental stem cell banking with Tooth Bank an ideal complement to cord blood banking. As a child grows older, there is a natural progression from banking cord blood to banking dental stem cells.

We Process the Most Dental Stem Cells in the U.S.

In most growing families, money is tight. Here at Tooth Bank, we firmly believe that every child deserves affordable access to personalized, regenerative medicine. That’s why our prices are consistently lower than our competitors’.

The initial fee is often a stumbling block for parents who want to help their kids have a healthy future. Parents who choose our competitors for tooth banking might pay $750, $1,000, or even up to $1,250 that first year alone, just for collection, processing, and storage. But at Tooth Bank, the first year’s fees can be more than 50% less costly —just $690. Plus, we offer family plans for parents with more than one child.

In addition, Tooth Bank is the industry leader in dental stem cell processing in the U.S.
