Did you know that regenerative stem cells can be preserved from the dental pulp of an extracted tooth?
Stem cells are generic cells that have the ability to divide themselves into identical copies, without changing into a specific type of cell. These generic cells can then be used to repair and buidl healthy tissues within various parts of the body. Current research is focusing on using dental pulp stem cells in regenerative treatments for maxillofacial repair and diseases such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, and Multiple Sclerosis.
The dental pulp stem cells can be harvested from extracted baby teeth, wisdom teeth, and molars in teenagers and adults. Southwest Florida Oral and Facial Surgery, P.A. has participated with the National Dental Pulp Laboratory to facilitate the patient’s decision to store their dental pulp stem cells.
The National Dental Pulp Laboratory has over twenty-five years experience in the cryogenic preservation of cells. If you are interested in preserving your stem cells from your extracted teeth, please contact the National Dental Pulp Laboratory directly at 617-244-6375 or www.NDPL.net for additional information. We also have brochures available in our offices.
