One of the most exciting prospects of regenerative stem cell therapy is its limitless potential to cure life-threating injury and disease. Now, the news gets even better: you can secure these valuable cells during routine wisdom teeth extractions at Innovative Implant & Oral Surgery in Feasterville, PA. Thanks to a recent partnership with StemSave, an industry pioneer in the field of stem cell cryopreservation, our patients can now bank their dental stem cells for utilization in future treatment of disease or injury.
Think of it as turning an otherwise everyday oral surgery into a potentially life-preserving experience!
Stem Cells from Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure among both teenagers and young adults. Instead of discarding the extracted teeth, patients at Innovative Implants & Oral Surgery now have the unprecedented opportunity to protect their future health and that of their family by preserving stem cells for later application.
Saving your dental stem cells during this planned dental surgery comes with numerous advantages. The procedure itself is painless since it is performed under general anesthesia. The process is also convenient and cost-efficient since it coincides with a routine dental procedure. Important stem cells that would normally be discarded are harvested and frozen for use in later therapies or treatments.
Stem Cell Therapy Is Revolutionizing Medicine
Stem cell therapy is one of the great medical advances in recent history, helping to improve the lives of those suffering from chronic ailments and addressing serious injuries without the need for conventional invasive surgery. This groundbreaking form of regenerative medicine is revolutionizing how we treat disease and previously “incurable” conditions, such as kidney failure, heart disease, diabetes, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Adult stem cells – also known as somatic stem cells – are found throughout your body. These powerful cells exist in your brain, blood vessels, organs, bone marrow, and even in the dental pulp of your teeth. Stem cells are incredibly unique in that they can differentiate or grow into virtually any type of tissue, including lung cells, skin cells, cartilage, bone cells, muscle cells and much more. Their “plastic” nature and ability to regenerate or repair tissues in the human body offers a wide range of medical applications, allowing doctors to treat everything from neurodegenerative diseases to traumatic brain injury.
