Putting milk teeth into stasis could save lives in the future.
Parents worried about the future health of their children could help ensure they can maintain good oral health throughout their lives by saving their baby teeth, it has been claimed.
The Daily Mail reported milk teeth are an excellent source of stem cells and these can be used to help in the treatment of illnesses that a person might develop later in their life.
As such, former rugby player Kyran Bracken has packaged the milk teeth of his children and sent them off to be cryogenically frozen at a lab in Cheshire.
“I’m sure that in 20 years’ time the possibilities of stem cells will be amazing and collecting them when the children are young will prove to have been worth its weight in gold,” Mr Bracken told the newspaper.
Elsewhere, Cosmetic Dentistry Guide recently reported Dr Kevin Brunski has developed the I-Denti-Fied chip, which can be implanted into teeth and then be scanned to prove a person’s identity.
He noted the technology has possible applications including identifying lost or abducted children, as well as enabling medical professionals to access an individual’s medical records more easily.
