DENTAL PULP BANKING
WHAT IS DENTAL PULP BANKING?
Dental Pulp is the soft tissue inside a tooth. It is the central part of a tooth and is made up of a living tissue which contains powerful mesenchymal stem cells. These have the unique ability to differentiate into many types of cells including bone, heart, cartilage, adipose (fat) and nerve cells, and thus have immense potential to treat various degenerative disorders.
WHY SHOULD YOU BANK DENTAL STEM CELLS?
Lifestyle and degenerative disorders are on the rise world over. Conventional treatment methods can only help you manage and not cure them.
Dental Stem Cells originate from the neurogenic tissue and can be harvested with ease from a healthy tooth that has fallen out or has been extracted. Thus, they offer multiple chances of collection and the procedure can be performed by your regular dentist.

Step 3: Post-testing, the sample is processed in a clean room adhering to international standards of sterility and hygiene.
Step 4: The sample is processed using our proprietary technology and the stem cells are isolated.
Step 5: Before cryo-preservation, the stem cells are subjected to a quality control analysis for count, viability, purity and potency.
Step 6: The cells are frozen at the rate of 1º C per minute till they reach -150º C. After that, a quality check is performed again and the cells are then cryopreserved.
Step 7: The stem cells are stored in imported cryo-containers with data logging for recording temperatures and liquid nitrogen backup systems.
