With recent advancements in medicine and research, we are just on the cusp of fully understanding the incredible potential of stem cells. Diseases that were initially thought to be untreatable may now be readdressed because of newly developed stem cell therapies. If banking stem cells could help you preserve your medical future or the future of someone you love, would you take advantage of the opportunity? Many people don’t realize that our teeth house an abundance of healthy stem cells, which makes extracted teeth an appealing option for collection. In most cases, third molars are the only teeth that are still healthy when they are removed, making wisdom teeth removal the perfect opportunity for harvesting.
We’re excited to announce that Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma has partnered with Stemodontics™. This partnership allows us to help eligible wisdom teeth patients store the stem cells from their dental pulp, which would otherwise be tossed out as medical waste. You can learn more about the process of stem cell banking by watching the helpful videos we’ve provided, visiting the Stemodontics website, or asking your doctor if stem cell banking is right for you.
