Benefits of Gathering Stem Cells During Wisdom Teeth Extraction

One of the most exciting prospects of regenerative stem cell therapy is its limitless potential to cure life-threatening injuries and diseases. The news gets even better: you can secure these valuable cells during routine wisdom teeth extractions, Thanks to a recent partnership with StemSave, an industry pioneer in 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 everyday oral surgery into a potentially life-preserving experience!

Stem Cells from Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure among teenagers and young adults. Instead of discarding the extracted teeth, Innovative Implants & Oral Surgery patients now have the unprecedented opportunity to protect their future health and their families by preserving stem cells for later application.

Saving your dental stem cells during this planned dental surgery has 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 usually 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 incredible medical advances in recent history, helping to improve the lives of those suffering from chronic ailments and addressing severe injuries without 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.

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy Applications

Stem cell therapy has shown great success in repairing, regenerating and healing diseased and damaged tissue. Potential uses for dental stem cell therapy include the treatment of:
