Banking your family dental stem cells will prove to be a common prodecure in the very near future.
Middletown NJ, Red Bank, NJ (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
Middletown NJ Dentist Dr. Robert Korwin is launching a service to preserve stem cells inside extracted teeth. By participating with Provia Laboratories, their Store a Tooth service provides access to technology to save the adult stem cells inside extracted teeth for future potential dental and medical uses.
Extracted teeth are a simple and convenient source of potent stem cells. Stem cells help the body renew and repair itself. These stem cells have been shown to regenerate bone in clinical studies. Scientists and clinicians are investigating many additional uses for stem cells from teeth such as for repairing or building new teeth, treating spinal cord injury, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and other important uses in dentistry and medicine. Individuals or families who store their dental stem cells may be better prepared to benefit from breakthroughs and advances being developed around the world.
Patients who are scheduled to lose primary (baby) or adult teeth can now choose to save their teeth rather than discard them, and bank them at Provia for future use. Wisdom teeth and baby teeth that are free of infection have the ability to be banked for harvesting stem cells.
These dental stem cells are adult cells and are not controversial embryonic stem cells. Only adult stem cells, to date, have been used to treat people. The most commonly known source of adult stem cells is bone marrow, used in bone marrow transplants, and in teeth.
After a consultation with Ellen Bereza, Territory Sales Manager at Provia Laboratories, LLC, who reviewed the patient benefits and experience of Provia, Dr. Korwin decided to provide this service for his patients who have their own future health in mind.
