Invest in Your Future
Stem cells have special regenerative properties that make them an excellent resource for treating illnesses and injuries. Today, stem cells are being used to treat autoimmune diseases, repair spine injuries, and much more. If you experience a disease or serious injury in the future and have stem cells banked in a lab, your care team may be able to use these powerful cells for regenerative medicine and other therapies.
At Oral Surgery Group, we make stem cell banking available to more people by offering this service following wisdom teeth removal. If you or your child are having wisdom teeth removed, we encourage you to ask us about stem cell banking and how you can invest in your future health.
What Are Stem Cells?
Your body is made up of trillions of specialized cells. These act as the building blocks for tissues and bones. A specialized cell has a purpose and can only fulfill that intended function. Stem cells, however, are unspecialized. They can become one of a number of kinds of cells that the body needs, including those responsible for tissue, organ, and bone repair.
Researchers have been using stem cells to develop potential new treatments for diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Crohn’s Disease. There are exciting advancements and applications of regenerative medicine on the horizon of healthcare. You can be a part of the future of treating diseases and injuries by banking your wisdom teeth stem cells.
Why Bank Stem Cells?
Traditionally, when banking stem cells, you must undergo a separate procedure to harvest the cells. By collecting wisdom teeth stem cells at the same time as a wisdom teeth removal procedure, you save time and money.
Wisdom teeth are large, healthy teeth. In general, they are only removed because there is not enough room for them. Because they are healthy, they contain a high amount of stem cells. When wisdom teeth are removed during the late teens or early twenties, their stem cells are at peak viability. By banking them, you preserve these youthful cells that may help your body heal from potential future illness or injury.
There is no risk for rejection, reaction, or developing a disease from donor cells when you use your own banked stem cells. If you need your stem cells, they are thawed and used at their healthiest state when they were first harvested.
Bank Stem Cells With Stemodontics®Oral Surgery Group has partnered with Stemodontics, a leading stem cell banking service. When you or your child undergo wisdom tooth extraction, we will send the wisdom teeth to the secure Stemodontics lab. There, your wisdom teeth will be safely frozen and preserved. If at any point you wish to receive your banked stem cells, contact Stemodontics and they will ship your stem cells to your healthcare provider.
