Stem Cell Banking
Safely Store Valuable Stem Cells From Wisdom Teeth
Stem cells hold incredible potential, and doctors and researchers around the world are only just beginning to uncover their many medical uses. Our teeth are a valuable source for stem cell banking, especially wisdom teeth stem cells, because they are large and healthy teeth with an abundance of these cells. These cells can be harvested from healthy adult teeth after they’ve been removed.
At Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we’ve partnered with Stemodontics® to make stem cell banking accessible to more patients. Eligible patients will have the opportunity to sign up to have their stem cells harvested and stored. If you’re interested in investing in your future with stem cell banking, ask us during your visit or enroll online through the Stemodontics website.

What Are Stem Cells?
Many people have heard of stem cells but are unaware that they exist in teeth and hold such potential for medical discovery. Your body houses many different types of cells; when you are injured, these cells will typically regenerate and repair. However, specialized cells, such as muscle tissue cells, can only regenerate and repair other cells of the same type. Stem cells are unique because they’re able to repair any type of cell your body needs. They are not limited to a single cell type, which means they can restore and heal skin, bones, muscles, nerves, and more.
As time passes, medicine and research regarding stem cells advances, and clinicians discover new methods for collecting stem cells, storing them in a controlled environment, and replicating for use in future medical treatment. Doctors and researchers are finding new ways to harness the power of stem cells and apply them in a way that encourages our bodies to heal. Diseases and disorders that were once believed to be untreatable may be treatable with stem cells.
Why Bank Stem Cells?
Healthy stem cells are in abundance in our bodies when we are young; however, the older we get, the more the quantity and quality of these cells begin to decline. Each time the cells duplicate, they lose value, making it harder for our bodies to recover from illness or injury. We can maximize stem cells’ viability for future use by harvesting and storing them as early as possible.
There are limited opportunities to safely and painlessly collect stem cells, which is why we encourage our eligible patients to take advantage of this chance. Wisdom teeth removals are ideal for stem cell harvesting and can make a difference in preserving your medical future.
Get Started and Bank Stem Cells From Wisdom Teeth
Signing up with Stemodontics is simple! Complete the enrollment process at our office before your surgical appointment or online on the Stemodontics website. Your surgeon will answer any questions you have about the process for collection and storage, and a member of our team will assist you in completing the online enrollment process. Once complete, the Stemodontics state-of-the-art laboratory sends a collection kit to our practice for the upcoming procedure.
After the tooth has been removed and properly stored, your oral surgeon will ship it to the lab for immediate processing and storage. Using your stem cell sample is easy. All you need to do is contact Stemodontics when you are ready. We will ship your sample to your designated healthcare provider.
